“As a Faith@Home Ambassador, Samantha is partnering with churches to help them develop a customized and integrated Faith@Home strategy that will help churches reestablish the home as the primary place where faith is nurtured. Statistics clearly showcase the fact that, for many, faith is being lived, expressed and nurtured at church but it is not continuing as a lifestyle that is being lived at home. As a result, children are being raised in hypocritical environments where faith is something you do at church and not at home and as a result, later in life, they are walking away from their Christian faith. Pastors and church teams agree that faith should be lived and nurtured in the home yet very few churches have an intentional strategy for equipping their people to be 24/7, faith@home-focused followers of Christ. Samantha, as a trained Ambassador for Faith@Home ministries (www.faithathome.com) is equipped to help churches and families reestablish the home as the primary place where faith is lived, expressed and nurtured.”

"Samantha is well qualified to take on this Ambassador mission. She has now served as a Director of Children’s Ministries in two churches. She has worked in local church youth ministry. She is a Coach for Children and Family Ministries for the Evangelical Covenant Church. Along with her experience, she has an exuberant passion for seeing healthy families bringing vitality and health to the local church and vice versa. Samantha is an articulate visionary with boundless energy and a wise grasp on the problems and challenges facing the church/family interface. She brings integrity to her role as an advocate for children and families as she has professionally cared for children in home, and she has worked as a Foster Care volunteer. She has a particular passion to take Faith@Home principles and help bring them to bear in families with children with special needs.
In our crazy disintegrating culture today we need strong voices calling the church into an intentional partnership with the home to maximize spiritual influence in the most effective way. Samantha has a role to play in this mission, and we are grateful for her influence in our community, and glad to recommend her ministry to your community."
