Hélène Ost

One of Hélène's favorite quotes is from Max Lucado: "Quiet heroes dot the landscape of our society. They don’t make the headlines, but they do sew the hemlines and check the outlines and stand on the sidelines. You won’t find their names on the Nobel Prize short list, but you’ll find their names on the carpool, and Bible teacher lists. They are parents!  Heroes!  Their kids call them Mom. Dad. Succeed at home first."
Jen Easley
G-Kids Director, Nursery
Jen is responsible for providing a safe, welcoming space for the very youngest of the Generation Church family. She helps parents feel at ease when they leave their little ones in the Nursery.
