Leadership and Staff
Christel Smallman | Assistant Director of Children's Ministry
WHERE ARE YOU FROM?
Mostly Texas and Michigan, with some time in Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, and New York. I lived in Brooklyn, NY for over ten years - the longest time I've lived anywhere.
FAVORITE SEASON OF THE YEAR?
WHY DO YOU LOVE JESUS?
Because He reconciled me to God and made me part of His family. Not because of anything I have done, but because of His unmerited favor and grace.
WHAT KNOW-HOW DO YOU BRING TO RESURRECTION?
Children's Ministry, Non-Profit Administration/Program Management, Advanced Experience in conveying the Gospel using materials like construction paper, glue sticks, toilet paper tubes, and cotton balls.
WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN YOU'RE NOT WORKING?
Sit on my porch and think and (on a good day) chat with passing neighbors. Watch British television, play games with my family, watch and discuss films with my husband (when I don't fall asleep). Read theology. Knit.
TELL US SOMETHING QUIRKY ABOUT YOURSELF.
I'm obsessive about my pens and penmanship. Also, I went 15 years without driving until I moved to Baltimore.
IMPORTANT PEOPLE IN YOUR LIFE?
My husband, Will, and then some of the many amazing women in my family who always point me to Christ: Maisie and Geneva (my daughters), my mom (Cheryl), my mother-in-law (Sandy), and more amazing sisters-in-law than any one person deserves (Andrea, Christa, Cindy, Lauren, and Mary).
