Lucie Hale

Children's Ministries Director

Our Kids love Lucie Hale. She is one of the few adults who has as much energy as the most rambunctious kid in High Voltage Kidz Church. Every Sunday morning is filled with high energy worship and praise, interactive messages, and a few surprises in the Children's Chapel. Ms. Lucie's leadership style is not just one of overseeing the volunteers directly involved with weekly teaching, but also jumping in head first, wherever there is a need. We have been truly blessed to have a retention rate among our volunteers, of about 85%. This is a credit not only to the hands-on ministry of Ms. Lucie, but also the quality of the program, and the sincere desire of our leaders to truly impact the kids of this generation.
