Nancy Merrell – Children’s Ministry Director

I have known since I was young that God was calling me to work with children. I studied secondary education at the University of Kansas. My husband, Ethan, and daughter, Madeline, and I have been at BVBC since 2006. In 2009, I felt God calling me to the Children's Ministry at BVBC. I believe it is vital to children to see their parents worshipping the Lord and to be able to share in that experience with them. We work to offer the best opportunities for growth from Children's worship and Sunday School on Sunday mornings to AWANA, Children's Choirs, Sunday evening classes and special family fun days. I enjoy meeting with parents and sharing our vision for working with them to grow children who love the Lord.
