Meet Katie Flores, CDM’s New Children’s Ministry Coordinator
At the March meeting of the CDM permanent committee, former CM Coordinator Sue Jakes passed the baton of leadership to Katie Flores. Katie has served in various roles at Covenant Presbyterian Church in Birmingham. She is a 2020 graduate of the CDM Certification program and helped plan the 2019 Established-Birmingham Regional Conference for Children’s Ministry.
Katie says, “My favorite rooms of the church have children in them. It is such a joy to listen to them share about what they enjoy and build relationships with them. Their trusting faith is such an encouragement to me.”
Katie will lead CDM’s ministry to children from Birmingham where her husband Bryan serves as an administrator for the University of Alabama-Birmingham (UAB). God has blessed them with two children, Caleb (16) and Grace Anne (10).
“I’m so thankful for the ways CDM seeks to encourage and equip those ministering in the local church.” — Katie
CDM Offers New Ministry to Wives of Elders
WE is a new ministry initiative under CDM to connect, serve, and strengthen the wives of PCA ruling and teaching elders.
WE is a relational hub, gathering women for encouragement and equipping them with resources to navigate their unique roles in the church. Our prayer is God’s Spirit will strengthen ministry wives (Eph. 3:16), which will strengthen ministry marriages, and in turn, strengthen the ministry of the local church.
WE cohorts provide a biblical foundation for understanding the role(s) of an elder’s wife, as well as opportunities for mutual encouragement. Amy Jung, the wife of a teaching elder, remarked, “The highlight of the cohort for me was having a taste of connection to other wives so that I am not just trying to survive, but am remembering the indicative, God’s truth, so I can better live out the imperative.”
