Associate Pastor/ Director of Ministries to children and families
Saratoga Federated Church
Vision: Our dream for the families of young children at SFC is to faithfully pass on to our children a compelling faith that is modeled by parents, pastors and volunteers. Not only does this goal have eternal benefits for every child
but it also is transformational for families as they take serious the call for discipleship within the home. With this in mind, SFC hopes to turn every household into its own small group and turn this ministry into an interconnected multi-generational system
of support and discipleship that prepares children to enter a hurting world with a Gospel message that has not simply been received but also made their own.
