For the past several months Christ Church has been searching both locally and nationally for a new Children’s Ministry Director. Good news! We have hired Michele Gavin to fill this important position. Michele and her husband Rusty moved with their two children to Austin for his work, and started attending Christ Church just weeks before we posted the position.
After doing undergraduate work in Fine Arts in Pennsylvania, Michele worked as a business professional in Houston before turning attention toward children’s education. She comes most recently from St. Timothy’s Anglican Church in Spring, Texas, where she was on staff as the Director of Education, which included oversight of the children’s ministry and nursery.
Now, here’s the crazy thing! Michele is going to Guatemala with the staff and Vestry next week. Yes, she just accepted the job on Wednesday and is already on board (literally) to join us on mission. What better way for her to jump right in and for us to welcome her to Christ Church?
Thank you for all your prayer as we searched for our new Director of Children’s Ministry. We believe Michele is the person God has called and provided for the next season at Christ Church and will be a great addition to our staff. I look forward to the time when you can all meet her in person. Be sure to introduce yourself in the coming weeks, and show her some Christ Church hospitality!
