Babette has a heart and love for children! She believes each child is created with a purpose uniquely gifted by God. Babette has a B.S. in Management from the University of West Florida and a Master’s in Early Childhood Education from George Mason University. Babette grew up as a Marine brat and married a Marine in 1988. The lifestyle of moving on a regular basis allowed her to connect with a variety of educational systems and diverse communities. Her favorite duty station was in Okinawa, Japan, where she grew a strong sense of respect for cultural differences.
Her last move brought her to Herndon, Virginia, in 2001. She was the Children’s Ministries Director at The Church of the Epiphany for over nine years. She implemented several exciting children’s programs, such as Surfin’ Girls, Talitha Koume and Battleground/Field Training. Additionally, she strengthened the existing programs of Little Women and Vacation Bible School. In 2005, she was introduced to Compassion International and became an advocate for them. She currently sponsors eight children in Tanzania and two children in Rwanda. She has been blessed to visit all of her sponsored children. Babette gives all glory to God for His faithfulness, power and guidance while doing ministry throughout her life. She is grateful for the love, support and prayers from her husband and two children as she takes on this position at Cedar Run.Send a Message
