Amy Coyle - Children's Ministry Leader
Amy has been a member of the St. Pete Vineyard since her husband introduced her to the amazing people there shortly after they started dating. "I never been in a church that so wholeheartedly welcomes and accepts it's newcomers without ever asking more of them than they're willing to offer. St. Pete Vineyard shows grace and love to a world that so desperately needs it and I'm humbled to be a part of that."
Amy is also a licensed commercial insurance agent and an hobbyist chef. Her hobbies and interests include reading, animals, talking theology with her husband, being outdoors (hiking, kayaking, paddle boarding, etc), and serving her city through her growing knowledge of God's love for her.
She is honored beyond all belief to be serving as the Children's Ministry Leader. She has learned so much about the love of the Father by growing in community with the smallest members of the SPV. Her hope is that each child who takes part in Kids City knows they are loved, safe, and that just because they're young, doesn't mean they can't be a mighty part of the Kingdom because the power of the Holy Spirit is in them!
