A Special Thank-You to Vanessa Wilkins & Family
It is with both great joy and sadness that we announce Vanessa Wilkins will be moving on from her position as the Director of Youth Ministry. Vanessa has sensed God’s leading in her life over the past few years toward caring for marginalized and orphaned children in our community, and she has therefore accepted a new role as Foster Care Director for the local ministry organization Hands of Hope. Her last Sunday on staff at CG Northeast will be June 3, 2018.
Vanessa and Andy serve our church family in a variety of ways, and Vanessa has done a wonderful job over the past five years in shaping our youth ministry to be a healthy environment for our middle and high schoolers to develop as followers of Jesus. She has trained and cared for our youth volunteers and has been an essential member of the staff and various leadership teams.
The Wilkins will continue to be a part of our church family, and Vanessa and Andy will continue to serve in the youth ministry and in the various other areas of leadership that they currently engage.
Please pray for Vanessa as she makes this transition into a new ministry role, and take a moment to thank her for sharing her passion and gifts and expertise with us and our youth. She will be missed in this role and as a part of the staff team, and we pray that this new season will be as enriching and exciting for her as these last five years have been!
