Keri Horst

Interim Director of Family & Children’s Ministry
I have the privilege of partnering with families here at Bethel in our Family & Children’s Ministry, encouraging, equipping, and walking alongside parents as they raise their kids to be Jesus followers. I also get to play silly games, do way too many crafts (is that even possible?), dance, eat goldfish to my heart’s content, and share the love of Jesus with the littlest ones of Bethel, which makes me incredibly grateful.
I am blessed to be married to Mike Horst, and we have three beautiful children. I graduated from the University of Florida with a BS in Family, Youth, and Community Sciences, and have taken several classes at Fuller Theological Seminary for continuing education. I have been doing ministry with kids and teenagers in either a volunteer capacity or paid position since high school, and served internationally in the mission field for three years. I love Bethel and its community, and I am so thankful that God called Mike and myself here to this wonderful church family!
