Director of Children’s and Youth Ministry – Christina McCarthy
Christina joined the MacNab team in the spring of 2018. She has been in the field of Children and Youth work for over 20 years and has a heart for youth of all ages. Christina feels it’s important to create a welcoming space for youth within their church so they can see themselves as valued members. Her aim is to assist youth in discovering their place in God’s family so that they can grow to be confident in knowing that they have a special place in God’s heart.
Christina grew up in Mississauga and began to call Hamilton home in 1998. She has been married for 20 years and has four children. Christina values her family and strives to bring a focus on families to her work here at MacNab. She LOVES all things sparkly and is pretty sure that when Jesus said to “… Let your light shine before others” he meant to do so with as much glitter as possible.
