Laura grew up in Kettering and has always called Christ Church her home. She married Mark, whom she met in student ministry and dated while they both attended Miami University. They have 3 daughters; Jennifer, Megan, and Brittany. Laura has always actively served at church. She has enjoyed volunteering in many aspects from Godly Play, Kids’ Camp, youth activities, small groups, women’s events, and various committees. As Children’s Ministry Assistant, her true passion is seeing the children actively learn about the love of God through stories of Jesus and God’s people and growing in their faith. Through this learning, Laura hopes the children sense God’s love and presence not only in the Kids’ Zone but also in the world around them. It is also a thrill to connect kids in the classroom, hoping they build faith-filled memories and friendships together.
