Kids Ministry Director Transition

The following is an update from pastor Jake:

This past Sunday we announced an upcoming transition in the Kids Ministry at Threshold, and I also wanted to communicate it through our blog.

Earlier this year, Ruthann Rutherford began sensing that God was calling her to step into more traveling and missions work. She wondered if leading the Kids Ministry was the right fit for her in this season. So, we gave it some time for prayer and discernment to see how the Lord was leading. After several weeks, Ruthann knew that she should step away from the Kids Director position in order to fully pursue God’s calling.

Ruthann will be finishing her time on staff at the end of this month. We are so grateful for what she has brought to the Kids Ministry! Her passion to see kids encounter God, develop a real relationship with Him, and be empowered by the Holy Spirit are things that will remain values in our program.

New Kids Ministry Director: Nikki Patterson

In the beginning of April, Nikki Patterson will be stepping into the Kids Ministry Director position. She has been faithfully serving as a volunteer in Threshold’s Kids Ministry for years, and recently joined our staff as the Kids Ministry Administrator. After a discernment process the elder team offered Nikki the Director position, and we’re thrilled that she has accepted it!

We’re so thankful for how God is faithful to lead and place people in the right positions at the right time. Let’s make sure to bless Ruthann as she transitions out of the Director role and welcome Nikki as she steps in.

We love our kids, and look forward to all that God will continue to do in their lives!
