Serena Evans – Pre-Elementary Pastor; Child Care Director
What I Do:
I serve multiple roles at Christ Fellowship. I am the Pre-Elementary Pastor, I am responsible for providing quality Promiseland experience for Pre-Elementary classes age 2 to 5 year old. I am also the Childcare Director, my team and I minister to the children by providing a safe and loving environment for them, at the same time we minister to the parents by ensuring that their children are in capable hands while they participate in connection opportunities within the church.
What I Love About Christ Fellowship:
The church doesn’t stop being a church inside the building but also pours into the community, school and globally. It is a safe and fun environment for my children to learn and grow in Christlikeness and they enjoy coming to church. Christ Fellowship is welcoming in so many ways. There is something for everyone no matter where you are in your walk with the Lord. You are surrounded with so many people and ministry that can help with your spiritual journey and life.
How I Ended Up at Christ Fellowship:
We relocated from Franklin, TN to McKinney in 2003. I was new to the community in search for a church home and a safe place for my children to interact with other kids and for me to grow spiritually. Found all of these things at Christ Fellowship. Got involved with Mom’s Connection, WBS, Promiseland Preschool and Children’s Ministry. God led the way for me from Child Care Worker, to Promiseland Preschool Teacher, to Childcare Care Director. He is still leading the way and as long as He leads I will follow.
Before Christ Fellowship:
We attended Franklin Christian Church in Franklin, TN. I was active with MOPS and the Children’s ministry.
How I Met Jesus:
I have known Jesus my entire life, when I was 16 I accepted Christ as my personal savior and got baptized. I strayed, went off the path in my own direction but found Him again. After our son, Tristan was born, I made a new commitment to the Lord, soon after that my husband; Scott accepted Christ for the first time and was baptized.
Favorite Bible Verse:
Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7
