I have met many children’s ministers who provided missions education in their program for children. There are fewer who engage children with regular service projects. My friend, Gina McKean, is a leader and example of serving others. She provides meaningful experiences where kids learn the joy of helping someone else.
Gina is the Children’s Minister of Portland Avenue Baptist Church in Oklahoma City. She reaches children in lower socio-economic neighborhoods with very diverse family units. She loves and cares so completely- for over 28 years and counting. Gina shares many ideas through Mr. Mark’s Classroom for other church leaders to use.
I interview Gina in this episode so you can get a glimpse of her heart and passion to engage kids in the gospel and serving others. Please excuse my gushing over her, but she is a true inspiration to me and so many others.
