Children's and family Pastor
Kay had the joy of growing up in a pastor's family in the small town of Howard Lake, Minnesota. This gave Kay wonderful opportunities to serve in many areas at a young age such as kids' choirs, youth groups, VBS, mission trips and more! She went on and earned her Elementary Education degree at Wheaton College in Illinois. Over the years she has had the privilege of inspiring and teaching children music, art, and core subjects in the public schools, instructing piano and flute students in her home piano studio, volunteering in women's and children's ministries at church, speaking at Covenant Pines Bible Camp, and leading the Children's Ministries in recent years at Maple Grove Covenant Church.
Kay’s desire is for all children to embrace that God loves them no matter what and accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior in their lives. She loves providing the opportunities and tools for children and families to learn to share this Good News with others.
In her free time, she loves spending time with her husband Scott and their three boys, Jared (college), Tyler (college), and Blake (junior in high school), along with their puppy dog Rocky and two kitties Leo and Ollie. Other favorite hobbies include speed-walking around the beautiful lakes in Maple Grove, canoeing at their family's White Birch Cottage in Nisswa, shopping with her twin sister, cheering on their boys in sport activities, traveling with her family, and baking award-winning cookies and gingerbread creations.
