Pam Joins the Connection Ministries’ Team!
We all know the saying “There’s light at the end of the tunnel,” and the past 5 months have been filled with uncertainty. Jackie left after being a major part of this ministry for 15 years. She moved back to Kansas to be close to her parents and family. Who would fill her shoes?
We spoke to some talented and gifted people, some who have been volunteers in our Friendship groups. Pam Crowder was one of them, and she is now the new Connection Ministries’ Consultant. We couldn’t be more pleased.
I hesitate to say she is replacing Jackie, because we can never replace the relationship we have with Jackie. Instead, Pam will bring her own spiritual gifts and talents to the position. She will love us, and we will quickly love her.
Pam has had a heart for friends with intellectual disabilities since high school when she volunteered for a summer day camp. Since then, she enjoyed a career in therapeutic recreation and working with people who are elderly and living with Alzheimer’s.
Pam has been part of the Friendship group at College Park church since it began about 10 years ago. She enjoys leading worship alongside our friends with disabilities and learning from their uninhibited praises.
We are grateful that God shines His light on us and brought Pam to our team.
