ALEATHA KEENER, EARLY EDUCATION ADMIN

God placed just the right person on our team to lead our Early Education Ministry!  Aleatha Keener started with us as a hands-on teacher...but we know God was grooming her all the while to mentor our team today: she knows it from the bottom up.  Aleatha is a great leader with a super heart...best of all she is a mom with kids in our kids ministry.  We have never had a better a team!  If you have questions, she the one to see and is happy to reach out to you with a listening ear.  She is responsible for overseeing our team members and volunteers in addition to every aspect of safety, cleanliness and curriculum prep.

 

TAYLOR KEENER, ELEMENTARY ADMIN

We are excited to add Taylor to our team!  She is an organizing machine and will keep our kids department running smooth.  She feels called to minister to children and simply loves building relationships with them week in and week out.  Her relationship with the Lord began at a young age.  She realized from the age of 8 that she also had a heart for children and followed that dream all the way through college.  Taylor recently graduated from Trinity Baptist College where she earned a degree in Elementary Education.  She will be teaching full-time for a local Christian school in the upcoming 2016-2017 school year.  She is passionate about positively influencing children and helping them develop their own relationship with the Lord and others.  She is not new to Church at the Beach.  She has served in our Early Education ministry rooms as a preschool teacher and nursery caregiver all the way through college.  We are thrilled to see her accomplish her dreams and find a place in our family!
