Pam Cherubino, Children’s Ministry Director
Pam is originally from Wooster, Ohio. She attended Mount Vernon Nazarene University and graduated in 2003 with a B.A. in Music with a Church Music focus. She has worked in churches for the last 16 years.
In April of 2013 Pam married her best friend, Joe. (He teaches 8th grade English at Olentangy Liberty Middle School.) Pam and Joe have a cocker spaniel named Buddy (aka Brown Dog), who is the cutest dog in at least Ohio…if not America. Pam loves exploring new cities, shopping at IKEA (and the triumph that comes when you build the furniture and have NO pieces left when it’s finished!), spending time admiring God’s creation, Christmas time, family and friends, and snow. Her favorite animal is a giraffe.
For over 13 years Pam has been working with young children and enjoys every minute of it! Pam loves being goofy and hanging out with kids, but most importantly, she LOVES teaching kids about God. It’s such an important time in the faith development for a person! Pam enjoys watching kids explore and discover things about their Creator and hearing them talk about God. Pam’s heart is to partner with parents in helping to instill faith in their child and to share God’s love with his children.
