Director of Children's and Family Ministry

Amanda and her husband, Darin, moved to the Rockford area in 2011 after spending several years around the Midwest. Amanda has a passion for children’s ministry and Grace Kids. She has worked in youth and children’s ministry for ten years and loves being able to walk with youth and children in their faith journey. She also has experience working with children’s musicals and choirs, loving dancing around and singing at the top of her lungs! Amanda has her BA in religion from Luther College, Decorah Iowa (2009) and is currently in seminary at Luther Seminary.  Amanda and Darin have 3 year old daughter named Grace Jody, who brings them so much love and joy! You will most likely see Grace running around church, talking with people and dancing in the aisles!  In Amanda’s free time she enjoys running, singing with the worship band, being with her family and watching sports.
