Children’s Ministry Director |

Meet Gwen

How did you come into a relationship with Christ?

I have attended church all my life. When I was 8 years old, a friend invited me to a children’s ministry program at her church. Through this program I learned that being a Christian doesn’t mean just going to church, but that Jesus wants to have a real relationship with each of us. I started reading and memorizing my Bible and was changed from the inside out.

What do you do at FOF?

On staff, I am the Children’s Ministry Director. As a volunteer, I work with Boulder Student Ministry. I also serve on the worship team.

Why do you do what you do?

Nothing is more thrilling to me than sharing the love of Jesus with children. They get it. Jesus knew what he was saying when he told the disciples to become like little children. Since my life and the life of my family was so changed through a children’s ministry program, I know how important the Rock is to FOF. There is no junior Holy Spirit. God is working in mighty ways through these little ones.

At FOF since:

October 2012

On staff since:
