Preschool and Children's Director - Cherith Rast

Family: I am the mother of 5 grown children and Grandma to one pretty amazing grandson! Caleb is married to a wonderful wife, Alanna, and they have one son - Jacob. Nathan is currently living in Fort Saskatchewan; Tiffany is teaching at High Road Academy in Chilliwack; Tiersa works with the Big Brother, Big Sister Organization in Grande Prairie; and Hannah is living in Aldergrove while attending Trinity Western University to get her Nursing Degree.

When did you come to GMB and why?:  I have been attending GMB Church for 30 years now after moving here from Langley, B.C.  I am very thankful for all the people in this church and for the love and sense of community that I feel here.

Education/Experience:  I have been teaching Preschool for almost 40 years and working as the Children's Pastor for 6 years.

What excites you about your ministry?:  After 40 years of teaching children and raising my own family I still receive so much JOY working with children of all ages. There is nothing that excites me more than to see children learning to love God and joyfully serve Him.
