Ministry Teams

Just as each of us has one body with many parts and these parts do not all have the same function, so in Christ, we who are many form one body, and each (part) member belongs to all the others.
Romans 12:4-5 – New Living Translation

We are the body of Christ, serving together, to do the work put before us with Katelyn’s Fund Orphan Ministry. Here are the members of Katelyn’s Fund and their primary roles. We are a completely lay ministry, with no salaries given. Collectively we serve Him through the things that we do, each part of equal value, and each part a key component of the whole body’s success. We praise God for our unique parts and the intricacy of His design. It is amazing to see how God has knit these teams together to be one body and how He uses and equips each one. We are so very grateful for each person who serves on the ministry team so diligently. These men and women give their time freely to serve families and bring Him glory.
