Our heart in Journey Kids is to connect with kids and families, Grow in God and Share His love with others.
Our Kids Pastor, Angela Oberlin, started her journey in kids ministry when she was 18, attending a youth service on serving. That night, she made the decision to get involved. Since then, her passion and love for kids has only grown. She has been actively involved in many areas of kids ministry for twenty years and graduated from Mt. Hope’s School of Pacesetting Leadership and Spiritual Authority.
Angela and Joe became friends first then quickly fell for each other, married in 1999 and have 3 children, Joey, Tyler and Grant. Angela’s family loves doing life “together” and are passionate about serving in church and their community.
Angela loves driving go karts on her property with her boys and riding into the sunset with her husband on his vintage motorcycle. She loves to teach kids, write curriculum, is creative, and relational. Angela is excited to create fun opportunities that encourage kids and families to CONNECT. She is passionate to see kids EXPERIENCE JESUS as they grow in the knowledge of God's word, develop deep friendship with Him, and share His LOVE with others.
