We are thrilled to announce the formation of our new Children’s Ministry Team, all effective June 1, 2020.
Catherine Payne will step into a newly created position, Director of Children’s Discipleship. The purpose of this position is to equip children and their parents to live ordinary life as the faithful presence of Jesus’ love. To that end, Catherine will oversee the kids’ ministry for birth to 5th grade, which includes teaching kids, equipping volunteers and, most of all, supporting and equipping the primary ministers to children: their parents. Catherine has served on our church staff since 2014, first as Care Giving Coordinator and since 2016 as Director of Pre-School Ministry.
Serving under Catherine’s leadership will be Elizabeth Collins and Courtney Armstrong.
Elizabeth Collins will join our staff as the new Director of Pre-School Ministry. Elizabeth has a teaching background, most recently at Nolan Elementary. She has also volunteered extensively in our pre-school and children’s ministry. We are thrilled about the gifts for relational ministry that Elizabeth brings to our team! With her husband Chris and kids Claire, Frank and Hal, Elizabeth has been a member of Signal Pres since 2015.
Courtney Armstrong will continue her service to our Elementary kids and families, now as the Director of Elementary Ministries. Not only is Courtney the best line dancer on staff, but her creativity and relational gifts make her an invaluable part of what God is up to at Signal Pres.
A special thanks to the Children’s Ministry Search Team: John Kinard, Emily Cooper, Kara Price, Jena Story, and TW Francescon served faithfully with Andy Cornett and Scott Bowen since January.
