Jasper Campus Names New Children’s Minister


 

Redemption’s Jasper Campus been searching for a children’s minister since the departure of previous Children’s Minister Hannah Martin in February. A team of six Redemption staff members interviewed several candidates by phone and in person and we are pleased to introduce our new Children’s Minister, Miranda Crow.

Quick Hits:

— Miranda is a 2015 graduate of Johnson University, a Christian Church-affiliated Bible College, with a degree in Children’s Ministry.

— She lives in Jasper and has been a dedicated volunteer with our Spring and Well children’s and teen ministries for several years.

— She interned at Redemption in the summer of 2014 under our previous children’s minister, Hannah Martin.

— Miranda and her family have been with Redemption for several years and she understands our DNA and mission of loving God, loving people, and seeing Him change the world one disciple at a time.

— Miranda is married to Curtis Crow, who is also on staff as Redemption’s Visuals Director. They were married in May 2016.

 

We are excited for the future of our children’s ministry at the Jasper Campus under Miranda’s leadership. We’re excited to see the vision she’s bringing, but also excited to see her continue the great things happening with kids at Redemption. Miranda will be working under the direction of Campus Minister Ryan Stiles as well as being shaped by the family ministries leadership of Amanda Miller, who is our Loogootee Campus Children’s Minister. Her first day is May 14 and she and we are looking forward to the days ahead.

Helping His Hands has been able to secure enough funds to start rebuilding her home in Gatlinburg and they need Redemption’s help. The basement has been poured, so Redemption will be framing and helping with other tasks on site to begin getting her house built.
