Michaela Cantu
Children’s Pastor

In 2015 we decided to make this our church family. On Sunday mornings,with my husband, Michael, I give direction to the children’s ministry.

I am teaching our kids to recognize at a young age who God is, to know His great love for them and to know that each of them is created to impact others with the gospel both now and in the years to come.
