WCC Children's Ministry Spotlight: Kristen Parks
We have so many outstanding people who volunteer in our children's ministry. We feel it is important to highlight a few of them.
Kristen Parks provides a very important role in our children's ministry at Willow Creek Church. As a wife to Bryon, and mother of 3 children in our ministry, Hayden (4th grade), Giuliana (1st), Christian (Pre-K), Kristen seeks to have her children raised in our church as well as participate herself in the lives of our many children at Willow Creek Church.
The Parks family has participated in the life of Willow Creek Church since the storefront days more than 20 years ago. Kristen's in-laws Karl & Debbie Parks have faithfully served as members of Willow Creek Church, and now find joy in the next generation of church members.
Kristen has found her role serving in our Willow Creek Pre-School and in our children's ministry, where she primarily serves on Sunday mornings as an elementary small group leader during our 10am children's worship hour. She was recently hired as a part-time teacher at the pre-school, and will be teaching 3 days a week beginning in August.
In addition to her work during the school year, I personally know Kristen best through her service at several Vacation Bible Schools. Kristen is a responsible teacher, helping to manage many pre-school students, and does a great job at maintaining enthusiasm through the entire VBS week. She is always quick with a joke and never takes herself too seriously.
We are so proud to have Kristen Parks and her family at Willow Creek Church. It is people like Kristen, who give of their time, and who genuinely enjoy telling our children about Jesus that impact our children for years to come. Thank you so much for getting connected with our children's ministry and our church. We love you!
