Kari Heckler, our youth director, comes to Rock Church with considerable experience working with children and teens. She has done everything from nursery director, preschool and kindergarten teacher, second grade Sunday
school teacher, children’s church leader, and youth leader at an inner city church. In addition to that, she and her husband, Chris, have six children of their own.
Mrs. Heckler has been on a travelling drama ministry team as well as directing many plays, skits, and programs for children and youth. At Rock Church, she has been key in facilitating that ministry with the youth group in creating and directing skits and human videos for services.
Her philosophy of youth ministry is that her role is to be supportive of parents as they raise their children to serve the Lord. Additionally, she believes “youth are to be encouraged and integrated into the church body rather than being an entity unto themselves.”
At Rock Church, there is plenty of teaching, training, and fun with other Christian teens in a safe and welcoming environment, and we feel that your children would be welcome plugging into Cornerstone Youth in Ministry.
