Nancy Cheeks has always had a heart for children. When she first volunteered to help in her church 10 years ago, she fell in love with ministry and, especially, with serving children. These years of faithful service have given Nancy strong ministry experience and a well-rounded ability to head the Pavilion children’s department. She has been instrumental in building a dedicated team who are creating an atmosphere where our children are excited to come to church. Nancy and her husband Jesse have been married 10 years and have two daughters—Gabrielle, age 10, and Alyssa, age 7. As Nancy says, "By building a strong spiritual foundation in Christ for our children on which to stand, this will help them as they grow, to love and accept who they are and not to feel like they have to be like anyone else."
