Spark Children's Minister
Amanda enjoys getting to make connections with the children of First Church and their families. She loves seeing the excitement and smiles the kids have when they walk into their classrooms on Sundays. "But my favorite part about working as a children's minister is seeing the look on a child's face when what we are teaching finally "clicks" and they begin to fully understand how much Jesus loves them. It's those "Aha!" moments that are so special to me."
Amanda has been a member at First Church since 2007. She began volunteering in Spark in 2015 as a Sunday school leader. She also volunteered as a children's leader for the Bible Study Fellowship women's group she attended. "I served as a children's leader for 3 years before answering God's call and joining the staff here at First Church."
Amanda and her husband, Daniel have two children: Lillian and Hunter. She and Daniel were both born and raised in Springdale and now live in Cave Springs.
In her spare time, Amanda likes spending time in the backyard with her family and taking neighborhood walks. She also enjoys crafting and playing Mario Kart with her kids.
