    We welcomed Christine, a mother of two (ages 9 and 15) and a part-time preschool teacher to our staff in August 2021. She has been active with her home church on their CE board, at their school, and with their children's ministry for the last four years. Before that, she was self-employed and, before that, she had a corporate job. In the last few years, she has felt called by God to pursue Children's Ministry as a career and is excited to serve at Fellowship Church.
