Nancy Pennington | Elementary Coordinator in Mission

When I was little, I used to play “school” with a vengeance. There was serious learning going on in my basement playhouse! There were two things I was going to be when I grew up – a teacher and a mom.

I was lucky enough to fulfill the mom part many years ago, and discipling my kids has been my most important calling.

I walked into the doors of Christ Church in 1995 and am so glad to have found a home. This community has been instrumental in helping my husband, Jerry, and I to raise our kids.

As for the being a teacher part of my dream, it hadn’t quite come to fruition. I was a corporate trainer for many years, but that wasn’t really what I had envisioned for myself.

However, in 2018, through only a path God could create, I had the opportunity to fulfill my two biggest passions and help disciple the kids of Christ Church Mission. Interestingly enough, I have found that Kids Ministry is not so much about teaching, but about loving.

Yes, I get to share the knowledge of biblical truths, but more importantly, I get to lead a team of volunteers who help our kids experience the love of God for themselves.
