Find God. Be a Friend. Make a Difference.

Joan Albert

As director of Children’s Ministry for the past 15 years, Joan has her hands in all things children – from nursery to 5th grade. She doesn’t raise flowers or vegetables but growing kids fills her with delight.

Who is one person (other than Jesus or your spouse) who has made a significant difference in your life? How?

Ruby Tinsley taught junior church in southern California in the 60’s. She sang to us, told us stories, and from her, I first heard of God’s love and forgiveness. I wish I could tell her “thank you.”

Vacation at the beach or vacation in the mountains? Why?

Until the mountains can offer snorkeling, I’ll always choose the beach.
