We are so excited to welcome our newest staff member, Missy Farley, as our Children’s Minister! In between packing and other preparations, she was kind enough to sit down and answer some fun questions so we can get to know her better.
How long have you been in ministry?
I’ve officially been full time in Children’s Ministry for over 8 years. Prior to that, I served as a volunteer for five years!
What excites you about working at Valley View?
Wow! That’s a great question. I’m excited to serve alongside a stellar team that Loves Dallas, Lives Free, and Leads Others. Their humility and authenticity shines through in all they do to expand His Kingdom. I’m also super excited to get to know and love on the kiddos in KidzView, and to partner with Valley View families.
What are two or three things you do for fun?
Travel, movies, and spending time with family and friends.
If you had to dye your hair one unusual color for a year, what would you pick?
What do you feel will be your main priorities with KidzView this year?
- Establish relationships with KidzView kids, parents, and volunteers.
- Create an exciting environment for kids on Sunday morning where they can realize their story is part of God’s story, and grow in their personal relationship with Jesus.
Have you spent much time in Dallas?
I’ve had the pleasure of visiting Dallas a dozen times.
What are you most looking forward to about living in the area?
I’m looking forward to new adventures and endless sweet tea.
Do you have a favorite verse or Scripture passage?
One of my favorite verses is Joshua 1:9 – “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
Finish the sentence: I am called by God to…
…love Him and love others. To be His hands and feet. To live on mission by spreading the Gospel.
Please join us in welcoming Missy! You can email her an encouraging note at firstname.lastname@example.org, or drop off a card at the Welcome Center this Sunday. If you are able, we are also collecting gift cards to restaurants to help her with an easy transition as she settles into this new season.
