Michaela joined the team May 2019 and, as the Director of Elementary Ministries, oversees the ECHO ministry for 1st-5th graders every Sunday morning. Michaela has been coming to South Park Church for several years now and serving in different ministries. She enjoys working in ministry because she loves being able to share the gospel in creative ways with children. She loves to see how kids understand and interact with the Word. Michaela is the oldest of 5 children and currently in her third year at Moody Bible Institute studying Youth Ministry. A fun story she loves to share is the time a stranger stole her half eaten sandwich from her hands while she was cheering on her friends in the Israel Half Marathon. Next time you see her, feel free to ask her about it!
