In May 2021 Katrina Wansink became the Director of Children’s Ministry at Second. Many of us know Katrina because she has grown-up in this congregation. In recent years she has been attending James Madison University (JMU) to pursue her interests in elementary education. She received a Bachelor’s degree of Science in Interdisciplinary Liberal Studies in December 2019, and she graduated from JMU in May 2021 with a Masters of Arts in Teaching degree. Soon she will be applying for a full-time elementary teaching job in Virginia Beach. When Katrina has been home on breaks from JMU, she has selflessly filled various roles at SPC, such as serving as a substitute in the nursery, teaching children’s Sunday school, and even coordinating VBS last summer. Katrina is thoughtful and has a heart for serving children, so we are deeply grateful for her continued presence. When not working with children, she enjoys board games, spending time with friends, and watching movies.

As the D.C.M she will be responsible for planning the monthly mission and fellowship activities for the nursery and elementary-aged children of the church, overseeing the acolyte program, and assisting the staff in other faith-building activities for the children. Please do not hesitate to reach out to Katrina if you have any questions regarding the nursery or children’s ministry, her email is wansink.katrina@spcnorfolk.org.
