Laura has over 23 years in ministry experience as both a Children’s Pastor and Community Life Pastor. She is passionate about building a strong faith foundation for children by providing a safe and fun place for them to learn to live and love like Jesus. Helping families to connect both with the church and each other to build a strong community is also a high priority.
Over the years she has worked with children as a pre-school teacher, Girl Scout leader, Teaching assistant, and P.E. Teacher. Her passion for her community has come through as she served as head of the PTA at 3 schools and headed an Every 15 Minutes anti-drinking campaign for a high school. These experiences have guided her desire to build a ministry that both serves the families of SRVUMC but to also guide them to serve others.
