Mike and Karina are directors of NOW GENERATION which is our Nursery & Children’s Ministry that runs simultaneously with our Sunday morning Celebration services. Both Mike and Katrina are originally from the Philippines. Mike moved to New Zealand at the age of 15 and Katrina moved in 2002. They wed a year later, and have been blessed with four kids: one son Miguel and three daughters Corina, Gianna and Matea.
During the week Mike works as an Inventory Controller and Internal Kay Account Manager for Fletcher Building Group’s Mico Plumbing and Bathrooms Division. Katrina formerly worked with ASB and is now a full-time mum!
Their heart and vision for NOW Generation’s Kids’ Church Ministry is 1) for every child to have an intimate and passionate relationship with God at an early age, 2) to help raise strong disciples in this day & age and 3) for this generation to reach and impact then next generation. Our Children are Disciples in training not in waiting.
It is a pleasure for our trained nursery and children’s ministers to help our guest’s and church family’s young one’s grow in God. We have a number of classes divided by age: Neophites (9 months-2 years old), Operatives (3-6 years old) and Warriors (7-12years old).
