I have not posted anything on here in quite some time and just wanted to tell you a little bit about myself at this point in time in my ministry. I have not always been a great example of what someone in ministry would or should look like. A lot of the time I was really good at masking the the pain, fear, and anxiety that i was fighting in my personal life outside of church. I still have days that are harder than most with the goal of staying on top of deadlines and events that happen in everyday life while having the same level of confidence in myself that God has in me. I think that we can all attest to the fantasy of having our lives put together, especially from a outward prospective. This is me in a nutshell from a professional stand point and i cannot wait to share and explore life’s moments, concerns, hopes, joys, and misses with words of encouragement and inspiration from God’s word.
My name is Jodee Gore and i currently serve as the Children’s Minister at First Baptist Church Bruce in Bruce, Mississippi. for ages 2 yeas up to the 6th grade.
Church and work life looks like this. As the Children’s Minister I work as the Children in Actions Facilitator, working with our (RAs) Royal Ambassadors, (GAs) Girls in Action, and Mission Friends directors to make sure that our teachers are equipped with the resources and supplies they need as well as plan and organize events throughout the year, and provide the children with mission oriented projects where they can, not only earn badges but also give them the tools they need to grow and strengthen there walk with Christ. I am also the Elementary Sunday school Director for preschool up to 6th grade. I serve as the Vacations Bible School Director/Coordinator, schedule and register kids for summer camp, teach our 5 years – 4th grade children’s church, schedule volunteers for our preschool children’s church.
Other areas I serve on the hostess committee, and work along side our media team with our Facebook pages. I also work part-time and fill in when I’m needed as a teacher for our churches daycare.
