Paulette Larmond – Youth Minister

It is a privilege and an honor to serve as the Christian Education Director, from 2017 through present. I’m the product of a Deacon and Pastor, so I’ve always participated in serving in the church, as I have given my heart to the Lord at an early age. I started teaching Sunday School as a teenager, which propelled me into Youth Ministry. I have held various positions and I have enjoyed working with Youths and children. In 2016, I heard the voice of the Lord, this is the area of Ministry, He has called me to.

Working in this capacity has built my Faith in God and allow me to develop qualities of a leader and team player. I am working with a team of volunteers, who have been called and commissioned by God. The Christian Education dept has the Children’s Church and Kidz Konnection, which serves children 12 years and younger. It is exciting being able to shape and mold young lives for Christ.

 Project Reclaim 2.0 targets 18-35 age group, which engages these young adults and allow their skill sets to be used in the church or church sponsored events.

We are also in partnership with Bethel Temple of Praise Youth Ministry, which serves the 13-17 years.

To God be the glory. I’m humbled to serve in this capacity. Praise God!
