Katie Tiffany: Children’s Ministry Leader

Contact Katie

Katie Tiffany has recently joined The Rock and brings a renewed zeal to our Children’s Church Program. Her desire is to create an environment that children look forward to attending on Sunday and ultimately win the hearts for Jesus at an early age!

Katie received her Bachelor of Arts from Loyola Marymount University in 2001 and shortly thereafter discovered a passion for Event Planning. It was 2004 that she committed her life to Christ and has since been involved in children’s church, international missions trips and high school youth group.

When Katie’s not coordinating children’s church or weddings, you’ll find her spending free time with friends and family. She loves the beach, relaxing with a good movie, and traveling at any opportunity she gets! Oh, and there are two things she can’t live without: laughter and chocolate.
