A Little About our Pastor . . .

Before becoming our church secretary in 2007, Pat Haney has been enjoying sharing the love of Jesus with children of all ages. She feels they should have an opportunity to learn about our Savior when they come to church. Pat began working with our Childrens Ministry in 1990 .
As a life-long resident of Jenks, OK her background brings a variety of experiences, exuberance and great expectations of seeing children grow and develop into Christ followers. Pat passionately believes that ministering to children is a partnership with parents to be the "hands and feet" of Christ for a child. She desires to see others work and grow together in the community of faith to care, serve, and love all children. She believes "playing" in the name of Jesus is some of the most rewarding, and most challenging work you can do in the community of faith.
Pat has been married to her husband, Scott, for 34 years. They have four sons. Their eldest son, Dan and his wife, Renata, live in the Tulsa area and have one son and one daughter. Their son, Jon, is a graduate of OSU-IT, and son, Mike is a student at OSU-IT and Paul is a graduate of Jenks Public Schools.
