Children and Youth Ministry at Redeemer
The vision and heart behind children's and youth ministry at Redeemer is that every child hears the Gospel on their level
and feels they have a place in the church family.
Children ages 4th - 6th grade meet twice a month for games, snacks, Bible study and prayer.
Girls ages 7th grade and up meet twice a month for fellowship, dinner, and Bible study.
Every child at Redeemer whose family wishes has the opportunity to be paired with a mentor.
The mentor is a member of the church who is committed to praying for, meeting with, loving, and discipling their men-tee.
We as a church do not dictate the structure of this relationship, but do check in periodically to offer support or guidance as the mentor feels needed.
Heather Heaton has been in New Orleans since December 2014, but the city quickly became her home, mainly because of Redeemer. She grew up in Florida with her mom, but newlyweds Jacob & Heather longed to be closer to her father’s family in Ocean Springs. She has a B.A. in English from the University of Florida (Go Gators!), and when she’s not working with Redeemer youth, she’s either helping local businesses with their benefits, watching movies, reading books, or playing board games with Jacob. It is her prayer that the youth at Redeemer would come to truly treasure their faith, their church, and their relationships at church, and that they would thrive because of that.
