New Children's Minister!
Exciting news: after an extensive search process, we have found our next Minister to Children! The church voted overwhelmingly to call David Maddron to be our Minister to Children and he will begin his ministry with us on January 25th.
David is a kid magnet who loves God and loves people. For the last ten years he has led a thriving children's ministry at Victory Church in Scurry, Texas. He and his wife Misti launched that church's children's ministry as volunteers when the church was planted, and for the last few years he has served full time as children's pastor. He currently working toward a degree online through Midwestern Seminary. His wife Misti is a high school teacher who is a big part of his ministry. They have served as foster parents to several children, and have adopted three of those children as their own (Andrew, age 10; Autumn, age 5; and Adam, age 2). They also gave birth to a miracle named Asher in March of 2014, but he passed away a few months later.
Aside from his passionate support of Texas A&M football, we can't find much wrong with David. He has a heart for reaching kids and families, and he already has some exciting plans for ministry in Lee's Summit. Be praying for God to continue to do big things through our church in the lives of children and families.
