Kyla Mould - Children's Ministry Assistant
I started my journey at McKernan Baptist Church back in 2004 and now 15 years later find myself on staff. I moved from my hometown of Nanaimo, BC to Edmonton to complete my Bachelors of Education after degree. I have known since I was young that I wanted to work with children as a profession. Many influential people in my family and throughout my school years solidified my decision to continue my dream of working with children.
My husband and I met at McKernan and we are thankful to continue our journey here now with our three great kids, two boys and one girl. McKernan feels like home and we are excited to see what God has in store for our family as we grow together in Christ.
My favourite things to do on my own time are being in nature, reading and gardening with my kids and reading on my own whenever I can get a quiet moment. One of my favourite childhood memories is hiking in the Rockies with my grandparents. Being surrounded by so much of God’s beauty takes my breath away every time.
My favourite part of working in Children’s Ministry is seeing the children quiet their hearts before God. I love seeing them authentically connecting with Jesus. It is amazing to see the love they have for God as they honestly share and live out their passion for Christ. I feel very blessed to be on staff here and praise God for His perfect timing and planning in my life.
Erin Gibbard - Youth Ministry Assistant
My name is Erin Gibbard and I have been part of the Youth Ministry Team since 2015. In June 2018 I started my role as the Youth Ministry Assistant. Before that I was involved with the youth ministry at West Meadows for 8 years and completed a BA in Theology and Youth Ministry at Vanguard Bible College.
My favourite part of working with teenagers is building relationships and getting to walk through life and faith with them. It is such a privilege and I love it!
In my spare time I love to camp and hike in the mountains, spend time at the lake with family, and read.
