Live the Gospel







Our goal in children and family ministries is to partner with parents to reach and teach children of all ages about the love of God that they might know Him as their Savior and be able to share His love with others.. It is our desire that every child experience God-centered people, programs and activities at our church that will nurture them in developing their faith.

meet the staff

Barbara McCoy has always been passionate about teaching children. She began her career as a special-needs teacher, and in 1980, God led her to a position as a teaching pastor. God has blessed her to follow her passion of leading others to Christ, all while having fun with kids and their parents in various activities and ministry events. She has a great family support team in her husband, Les, and her daughter, Lauren. As with all parents, she takes seriously her call to be a spiritual leader in the home. She has teamed with Les to teach Lauren, and her extended family of friends, about the unconditional love of God.
