Welcome Adrine!

07.15.18 | News | by Shannon Cronin

    We are so happy to introduce our new Children's Ministry Director, Adrine Gasimyan! She is a blessing to Messiah and we are excited to see how God works through Adrine to pour into the children and families of Messiah.

    Read Adrine's note to Messiah here:

    Dear Messiah Family,

    It is an honor and a pleasure to be here as part of the team, serving you and your children.  My love and passion for children developed 13 years ago when I served as a toddler teacher at The Church on the Way.  Soon after, I began overseeing the special event's childcare.  A few years later, I transitioned into teaching preschool and continued serving in children’s ministry with different age groups.  I was even a youth worker at one point, but the Lord helped me realize my true passion lies in children’s ministry. 

    After moving to Orange County, I found Cornerstone Church and got plugged into the children’s ministry there; as I continued teaching preschool at Hephatha Lutheran.  I received my Bachelor’s in Christian Studies and my Baccalaureate Certificate in Christian Ministry from The King’s University. 

    I believe that children are God’s most precious gift to us and we need to not only love them, but also nurture them, protect them, teach them, and raise them up in the ways of the Lord, so that when they are old they will not turn from it; all while, having a blast!

    I look forward to getting to know you and your precious children as we work together to raise up a generation that will soar to new heights for Jesus!

     With love,

    Adrine Gasimyan
