CHILDREN’S MINISTRY DIRECTOR
Taylor Gilman is responsible for overseeing the children’s ministry. Her hope is, by God’s grace, to encourage and support families in their commitment to growing in community through the knowledge and application of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Her and her team of member-volunteers work toward this goal by providing an intentionally gospel-centered, safe, and fun environment for children, freeing up parents to worship corporately in the church service, trusting their children are being properly cared for and discipled.
1. What do you do for fun?
I love building relationships with the women in our church by having genuine and honest conversations that, by God’s grace, lead to deeper affections for Jesus. I also LOVE kids. I nanny full-time and can’t think of a better way to spend my work weeks. Besides that, I’m always down for a good Christian book or inspirational movie based on a true story!
2. What is something that most people don’t know about you?
My two favorite snacks are pickles and jalepeño-stuffed green olives. I have these almost every day. Also, my first name is Laura!
3. What are three books that everyone should read?
Oh my goodness, such a good question! It’s hard to narrow it down, but currently I would say – “Radical” by David Platt, “Crazy Love” by Francis Chan, and my all-time favorite (a must-read!) “Safely Home” by Randy Alcorn. That last one is actually Christian fiction – so convicting and made me SO excited for Heaven!
4. What excites you about The Response Church?
God has literally changed my life through this church. I am most thankful for the strong biblical teaching and the rich, authentic community. Jesus’ blood has made us family, and I am incredibly excited to keep growing as a church! I’m obviously most stoked about God continuing to grow our children’s ministry. Bring on the families!!!
