Tina has been a member of Amazing Grace Fellowship since 1998 and began serving in the Children’s Ministry right away as a Preschool teacher. She also served as the Preschool Department Head and as the Assistant Children’s Director volunteering up to twenty hours a week, meeting weekly with the Children’s pastor and planning events. She has also been a member of the worship team and is a Ladies Bible study leader.
She has been married to her husband, Terry Downs, since 1982. They have three children, and a son-in-law. Tina homeschooled all her children at some point in their lives. She has also served on the JuMP Co. Board for two years.
After the kids were grown, she began to ask the Lord to give her something to do. So in 2014, when a need for a Children’s Director arose, she volunteered. She continued to volunteer for six months, until February 2015, when she accepted the full time position as Children’s Director.
