TARA SWIST, CHILDREN’S MINISTRY DIRECTOR
My name is Tara Swist and it is a privilege to serve as the Children’s Ministry Director at Raymond Baptist Church. Having a heart for children and a love for sharing the Good News of Christ, I serve alongside my husband Ken, of 20 years, on the worship team, directing Vacation Bible School and serving in various ministries throughout the church.
Raised in a Christian home, I accepted Christ’s gift of salvation at a Billy Graham Crusade in Boston my junior year of high school. Upon graduating high school, I enrolled at Gordon College, in Wenham, MA, earning my Bachelor of Science degree in Early Childhood Education.
This led to a 15-year teaching career in both private and public schools, and 7 summer’s directing summer camps. After adopting our 5 children, I have had the privilege of being a stay at home mom, as well as, homeschooling them.
As the Children’s Ministry Director, my desire is to Reach, Teach, and Serve families in equipping them to grow in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, walking alongside them and their children as they “grow in wisdom, in stature and in favor with God and Man,” as proclaimed in Luke 2:52.
