Carmelita Wasson serves as our Children’s Ministry Director. Carmelita received a Bachelor of Science in Technical Communication from the New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology and worked for several years for a Fortune 500 science and technology company. Eventually after having her daughter she left the company to be a full-time stay-at-home mom.
Carmelita has worked with children of all ages from Infants to High School through volunteering in youth groups, helping in church nurseries, leading activities during Vacation Bible School, assisting in AWANA classes, and teaching children in children’s ministry. For five years, Carmelita served as a Children’s Leader for Bible Study Fellowship, teaching toddlers, preschoolers, and grade school-aged children, where God grew her love of teaching children from the Bible. Carmelita especially loves telling Bible Stories to kids of all ages and believes that Biblical literacy can begin at an early age.
Outside of church, Carmelita coaches an all-girl robotics team, serves as a Girl Scout co-leader, and enjoys all things papercrafting. She and her husband, Steven, have one daughter, Sybella.
