Fred and Laurie Brown
The Brown family came to Shelby 18 years ago to help plant the church. They have had the privilege of getting to work along side and ministering to those on the Hi-Line.
Jerome and Kariana Bushnell
The Bushnell's were married in August of 2007, and their family began to grow in June of 2008. They have three kids; Parker, Aliza, and Jeremiah. In the Spring of 2013, Jerome and Kariana moved their family from Great Falls to Shelby and began attending New Life Community Church in the Fall. Since then, they have been involved in Children’s Ministry as well as M&M Fellowship.
1 Timothy 4:12 International Children’s Bible (ICB)
12 You are young, but do not let anyone treat you as if you were not important. Be an example to show the believers how they should live. Show them with your words, with the way you live, with your love, with your faith, and with your pure life.
More Golden Nuggets From The Bushnell's
Jerome loves playing games and having fun. Kariana loves to nurture and teach kids. Together, they make a good team to care for the children of New Life, and to show them the love of God in a tangible way.
Since New Life is a safe place, Kariana and Jerome take their role seriously as they encourage the kids to pray, but never require them to do so. The kids have the opportunity to read out loud, but they are never pressured. They love to see the kids engage in asking questions and to get excited about the Jesus who gave His life for the little ones.
Speaking of little ones, the nursery is staffed with a great team who also cares for the kids and teaches them the basics of God’s word. “It takes a church” becomes true because all of the children’s ministry team members do their part to help the spiritual growth of the children of New Life.
Please feel free to ask Jerome and Kariana what and how they are teaching your kids. Parent/Guardian involvement is something that NewLife encourages. Never will your kids be placed in a situation that is unsafe, or without your approval.
We believe the children have the potential to play a vital role in the work that God is doing in our community.
