Children’s Leader | Tamara Haw & Kingdom Kids
KK Timothy 4-12Hello Severn Bridge Camp! 
My name is Tamara Haw, and I can’t wait to meet all of you guys at family camp! I will be leading our Kingdom Kid team who will be running the Children’s ministry, and we are so excited!
I have been running children’s ministry for about two years now. I am working at a church as their Children and Youth Director, and I am living the dream! God has put a deep love for discipleship in my heart, and I love to watch kids lead other kids, and even sometimes lead adults closer to the Lord.
My Husband and I have been with Kingdom Kids for many years, but this past year the Lord lead us to create a second branch of ministry! We run, along side our amazing team, a kids club where we reach into our community, and have seen God move mountains in our community kids live’s!
We have an amazing group of teenagers and young adults who have been called by God to lead in Children’s Ministry. Our mind’s have been blown by these teens, and we realized very quickly that God has amazing plans for each of their lives. We count ourselves blessed to get to do ministry beside them.
Well, we can not wait to get to know you all, and get to worship, dance, and have fun with you guys for the Glory of God! See you soon!
