“And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.” — Hebrews 10:24-25



Katie grew up attending Grace Chapel and is so excited to be invested in God's work in the Children's ministry!  She came to know the Lord at a young age through seeing the reality and evidence of Jesus in her parent's lives.  She continued to grow in the knowledge of the Lord through Sunday school, youth group, and missions trips.  

Katie graduated from Taylor University with a graphic design degree and has worked in product development for the craft and toy industry as a brand manager and later as a graphic designer.  She has been happily married to her husband, Derek, for almost 12 years and has 2 kids, Matt (9) and Bethany (5).  She continues to work part-time from home as a graphic designer as she raises her children.

Over the years, she has been committed to and led various Bible studies and small groups. She has served as a children's teacher for a community bible study as well as a children's teacher at Grace for about 3 years.  She has a passion to help children know the Lord, to deepen their relationship with Him, and equip them with a solid Biblical foundation.
