Francelle Somervell

CHILDREN'S MINISTRY DIRECTOR

While I was studying at university, I met some Christians who spoke to me about a God who was both all-powerful, and yet a deeply knowable, personal God. Having been raised in a non-religious family, this concept of God was astounding. I didn’t know much, but I knew that I wanted a personal relationship with the God of the universe. 35 years on, I am still growing in my understanding and love for this great God. I love teaching God’s word: to children, teens, women…anyone who wants to hear and learn. In our children’s ministry, we are learning about Jesus: who He is, what He did, and why He came to earth.

Favourite Scripture:  “To Him who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb, be blessing and honour and glory and dominion forever and ever.” (Revelation 5:13)

Relaxation: Reading, walking, biking along the many local trails, and going to the beach.

Interesting fact: I love roller-coasters! The scarier the better.

Francelle is married to Peter and they have four children at various stages of leaving the nest.
