Meet Our Children's Pastor
Hear from Brother Charlie Gardin in his own words. "I began coming to New Manna on the church bus at the age of 9 and was saved while attending a youth camp. I completely surrendered my life to the Lord at a Camp Meeting service here at New Manna when I was 21. Since that day there have been many blessings and opportunities along the way. God has allowed me to serve in many different areas of the ministry and I am currently a full time employee for the Church and Christian School. This allows me to pour myself into the work of God each day! God has allowed me to serve as a Children's Pastor, Sunday School teacher, bus driver, basketball coach, and athletic director."
"My beautiful wife Shanna and our three boys, Simon, Spencer, and Wilson, mean everything to me. We are dedicated to our part in making a difference in the lives of our young people, for the Lord Jesus Christ. (Matthew 5:16)"
At New Manna we believe that children should start learning from a young age, about our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. With the world having such an encompassing influence on young minds, it is a solemn duty of the local church to "train up" children in the right way. Our Little Giants Children's Ministry meets each Wednesday at 7pm in the school cafeteria and gymnasium. Services are filled with singing, games, competitions, and sound Bible preaching and teaching with messages geared directly for the hearts of our children. God regularly meets with us during our services, and has shown us his desire to have a relationship with our youth at an early age.
