Responsibilities

            Children’s Ministry is such a vital part of the life of the Church. Statistics show that 64% of people become Christians before the age of 18, and nothing beats seeing “child-like faith” up close and personal. Ashley has always had a heart for children, and God has continued to bless her ministry wherever He has led. At Auburn, Ashley’s responsibilities include direct involvement with K5-5th grade, as well as administrative responsibilities for Preschool. We are always excited to see what the Lord is doing in the life of our children!
