Trisha Peach bio: "When I was eight years old, I felt God calling me to be a children's pastor. That calling has defined much of who I am. I am now an ordained minister, graduate of North Central University of Minneapolis, with more than 20 years experience in children's ministry. I love being a children's pastor, with all of our ministry opportunities at the main campus and all of our sites and partnership churches. My personal goal has always been "to see children receive Christ as their Savior, and then to help them use their giftings to minister for Him." I believe in children IN ministry- kids leading worship, dance, acting, doing puppetry, running the sound/AV etc. Kids working hard because we want to give God only our best. I also travel doing camps and Kidzshows. YAY! My most important ministry is to my family- my husband Scott and our kids Logan (11) and Eliana (9). I also enjoy jogging, swimming, zumba, sushi, curry, -anything with my friends! travel all over the United States and abroad!! I have a wonderful brindle plott hound named Ursani and two beautiful kitties (boys, age 5 named Danny and Midnight) - all shelter rescues. I have a large, very close family, many of whom are also ministers. I enjoy making new friends from around the globe, and I am passionate about children's ministry missions.
