Becca Woodward

Director of Children's Ministries

Becca joined our staff in September 2016 as our Director of Children's Ministries. She is a 2005 graduate of The University of Toledo with a degree in Communications, and has actively served as a ministry volunteer and leader prior to joining our staff. Her past experiences working in related fields such as web marketing, public education, community advocacy, youth program devopment, youth ministry (as a pastor's wife) and Christian retail management have equipped her to lead with excellence. At the core of each of these past experiences has been a deep desire to faithfully serve the Lord and to share the good news of Jesus Christ through both word and deed.

Becca is the wife to Nick and mother to three totally awesome kids: Maggie, Brandon, and Austin. She loves chidren, running, a good cup of hot chocolate, a little bit of organized chaos, and is always looking for ways to find Christ at work in the midst of it all!

If you've got questions about our Children's Ministries or would like to sit down and chat over a good cup of hot chocolate (or coffee!) don't hesitate to ask. You'll find her with a smile on her face, and most likely, a child strapped to her leg.
