Family Ministries Administrator
“There is nothing more rewarding than sharing God’s love with children and youth!”
Traci Lowry is our family ministries administrator. She believes that sharing God’s love with children and the youth is the most important job she has ever had outside of being a mom. Traci is married to Donald, the funny guy you will find entertaining our kids on Sunday mornings in the amazing kid’s Extreme Worship service. Traci and Donald have been married for over 16 years. The coupled has two adorable little girls, Faith and Sarah-Rob. Traci and her family have been members at our church for over ten years, and Traci herself has worked for the church for four years. She has a Bachelor in Marketing from Georgia State University. Before working at our church, Traci worked for Gillett Company, Greenville News, and a bottled water company. When God first lead Traci to our church, she began working with our children. She taught preschool for three years, volunteered as a choir director, Sunday school teacher and a children’s worship leader.
Q&A with our Family Ministries Administrator
What has God called you to do at HMUMC?
God placed it on my heart that our community is desperate for a place where families can worship together. Families long for a place where they can praise God and learn about His “Big Ideas” in the same room! Where children are accepted and the message is relevant to the whole family. We want to be a place that equips parents with the tools to answer life’s hard questions and provides support in an ever-changing and broken world. Families are desperate for a place where students feel safe, loved and accepted. A place where teens can experience worship that brings them deeper and closer to the Lord. A place where they can raise their hands in worship without feeling ashamed! Finally, He has made it clear the importance of creating an environment where families of all ages can serve Him side by side…sharing His love through missions. I am so lucky to be a part of Family Ministries here at HMUMC!
Where to I see things in 5 years?
I see a children’s worship center, a vibrant youth worship and small group area that is overflowing with students and adult volunteers! I see a congregation that is SOLD OUT on kids and raising them up in the faith. I see children and students that love to come to church and bring their friends with them. They serve the church and the world through missions and service projects.
Praying for people to help?
My prayer is that our members and visitors will answer God’s call to service and will be passionate about what He has tasked them to do. I pray for strong leadership from church members who will take ownership of projects they love and are passionate about and will recruit help from their friends and others in the church. My prayer is that every person who is a member here will serve God here, where they are, as well as in the community and beyond.
