Growing up in this area, I have had the privilege of attending Stallings for as long as I can remember. This has truly been a blessing and is the foundation for my love of the Lord and for the love of this church. After graduating from UNCC and marrying Gregg, I taught briefly in the public schools, but our family was growing and I came home to raise Megan, Jake and Madeline. It wasn't long until we felt the calling to homeschool. That has been and continues to be an indescribable blessing, as we have graduated Megan and continue schooling Jake (10 years and counting since we started). God has taught me, through that leap of faith, about what He can do through me and more importantly, how perfect His plan is for me.
As I work with the children, youth and college age of Stallings UMC, I have the assurance that He works through us, preparing us along the way, equipping us for what He calls us to do. It is my vision that the Children, Youth and College Age ministries will grow through opportunities for learning and spiritual growth, equipping us to fulfill the Great Commission to make disciples of all nations, starting with Union County, NC. Together, we lead and teach by example to our youngest members, we worship and glorify Christ, and we are united in a common goal to be used by Christ to bring glory to His kingdom.
"'Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.'" Matthew 28:19-20
