New Kids Ministry Staff Members
October 3, 2018
We are excited to announce that Sarah Werkema will be joining our staff as the new Early Childhood Ministry Coordinator at Jamestown Harbor. This Spring we’ve decided to add this position to our kids ministry staff as a way to give more leadership opportunity and to develop new ways of equipping the next generation and we’re excited that Sarah is stepping into this role!
Sarah and her husband, Dane, have two children, Lauren (5 years) and Owen (2 years). As a family they love camping, music, and monster trucks. Sarah and her family have been part of Jamestown Harbor Church for the past two years and have volunteered in in lots of ways (you may notice Dane as a guitarist on our worship team!).
We also are excited to announce that Nicole Eardley has also joined the team as our next Kids Ministry Director. Nicole is replacing Jeff Bergstrom, who is moving to fulltime work with Harbor Churches overseeing our facilities projects throughout all of our campuses.
Nicole and her husband Mark live in Hudsonville and have two beautiful children Lucie (3 years) and Maverik (8 months). Nicole is leaving a career as an administrator in the health care setting to be home a little more to squeeze those babies, to squeeze your babies, and to help them and new families to the church find their way back to God through the kids ministry.
Sarah has begun her time on staff this week and you can reach her at Sarah.Werkema@harborchurches.org. Nicole will be transitioning onto the team over the next few weeks and you can reach her at Nicole.Eardley@harborchurches.org.
As we step into uncharted territory of ministry together, one of our key priorities is investing into the next generation and both Sarah and Nicole are a big part of that investment. We’re thankful they will be helping some of our youngest ones find their way back to God!
