Jolanda Howe joined the staff at COS as the part-time children’s ministry coordinator in June of 2019. Previous to serving at COS she worked on curriculum editing, training, and consulting for Faith Alive Christian Resources and continues to serve as the children’s ministry coach for The Church Renewal Lab through The Center for Church Renewal. She’s also involved in community organizing for affordable housing with Grand Rapids Homes for All. Jolanda’s biggest passion is sharing the love of Christ with kids and involving children in every aspect of the life and ministry of the church. You’ll often find Jolanda’s husband (and favorite ministry partner) Jim, serving right by her side, with their kids Sophie and Oscar not far behind! Please feel free to reach out to Jolanda any time to learn about children’s ministry at COS and how to get involved!
