Ashlynn Corrigan, Children’s Ministry Coordinator-
Hello, Aldersgate! I am so excited to be apart of this church family and to be stepping into the role of the Children’s Ministry Coordinator. I grew up in Baltimore, MD and then moved to York, PA when I was ten. My family became active church members at Grace Fellowship in Shrewsbury, where I was very involved in the youth ministry. After being so impacted by the youth group, I decided to become a Youth Group Leader myself after I graduated high school, and that is where my love of ministry began.
I also had a love for teaching children, so I attended York College of PA, where I received my degree in Early Childhood/Elementary Education in 2018. After working in the school system, I decided my heart was longing for more; I wanted to be able to have a career where I could do what I felt called to do (teach children) while simultaneously having a hand in ministry or something faith-based.
I was confused as to what God wanted me to do because there aren’t many job positions with that description, but I prayed for His will to be done and promised Him I would be open and obedient to whatever He was leading me to next. After much prayer, I came across the open Children’s Ministry Coordinator position here at Aldersgate Church.
Although this was something I had never considered for myself, I felt God put it on my heart to apply for the job. After meeting some of the staff and volunteers at Aldersgate during my interviews and experiencing the love and open arms at the Sunday service I attended, I knew this was where the Lord was calling me next. I am so excited for what God has in store for the Children’s Ministry and truly believe this is going to be an “Amazing Adventure.”
I am so looking forward to meeting and connecting with you all! Please feel free to reach out to me at any time, I would love to talk with you.
