Changes in Leadership for Grace Acres and Cross Street

Hello Grace Acres & Cross Street Volunteers,
Katrina (our Preschool Director) and I (the Elementary Age Director) are working on changing the leadership dynamics so that we are working more in our areas of passion. Below is a brief description as to what’s going on starting August 1st along with a 4 1/2 minute video that goes into greater detail:

1. My new title and roles:
a. I’ll be the Kids Pastor over Grace Acres and Cross Street
b. I’ll be the Director of Kids Ministry Production: handling GA Large Group, CS Large Group, and Cross Street LIVE
c. We are launching a new Preteen Ministry called REVOLVE for 4th/5th Graders on September 11th at ROSSVIEW ONLY . . . I’ll be the Preteen Pastor.


2. Katrina’s new title and role:
a. Katrina will be the Director of Kids Ministry Small Groups in Grace Acres and Cross Street
b. Katrina will head up training Small Group leaders and assistants.

This is a HUGE HUGE HUGE job . . . Small Groups are at the heart of what we do in GA and in CS. Bottom line, Katrina is in charge of the most important aspect of Kids Min at Grace Community Church. She will need strong leaders who are willing to step up and go the extra mile in order to engage the hearts of our kids for Jesus.

3. The Family Ministries Team will be hiring another person in Mid-August . . . and one of the roles this person will carry out will be to act as an Operations Director for GA and CS: Leading Check In and enhancing systems.

For a more detailed look into what is happening check out this video. You will also find out about some more cool info concerning REVOLVE & a heads up about changing the theme in GRACE ACRES:


In the past we have used the term Kids Ministry to talk about K thru 5th (Cross Street) . . . from here on out when we refer to Kids Ministry we are talking about GA and CS. We are linking arms from behind the scenes . . . on Sunday mornings though we will still have a defined Grace Acres environment and a defined Cross Street environment.
