We are so excited to introduce you to our newest Regional Coordinator, Barb (Barbara) Tegtmeier from Albuquerque New Mexico. Although Barb is officially retired, she has many different hats that she wears. She is a Lay Leader at her church, Christ United Methodist, is a certified Lay Ministry who organized a team and began Messy Church at her church, is a CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) and recently become a Chaplain for Albuquerque Police Department. Whew!Barb tells me that at 66 years of age, it is difficult to keep her Bio brief. I would think so when you meet her and experience her zest for life!
Barb shares this about her Messy Church Experience:
I look forward to encouraging others in many denominations to begin Messy Church as a way of reaching more people for Jesus Christ. I strongly believe in the five values of Messy Church and do my best to hold my Messy Church team accountable to a high BAR. Our Messy Church Vision Statement at my church is: Christ UMC will continue our legacy by going out to meet people and return with them to a space for the power of the Holy Spirit to work in us all as we experience a grace filled encounter with God through Jesus Christ.
Welcome Barb, we are so glad you are part of our regional coordinators!!
Team Leader, Messy Church USA
