Since the beginning of the Church’s documented history, youth education has been a priority. The position was for Associate Pastor of Children and Youth Ministries. After much searching Kerri Sandusky was called to fill the position in February 2012. She held a Master’s in Education Leadership and had earned her Master’s of Divinity from Fuller Theological Seminary. She was currently teaching language arts and English in the Dysart School District.
The Church was honored to assist her through the licensing and ordination process. Her Ordination Advisory Board were representatives from this Church, Parker United Methodist Church, Spirit of Grace Lutheran Church, Spirit Song United Methodist Church, and the Community Church of the Verdes.
After her review they announced, “We highly, enthusiastically recommend Kerri Sandusky as an ordination candidate of the gospel ministry of Jesus Christ.” Her ordination was held October 28, 2012 with speakers from her Ordination Advisory Board.
In 2019 she accepted a senior pastor position in Tipton, Iowa.
