REVEREND KARENFAY RAMOS-YOUNG
For Reverend KarenFay Ramos-Young, her faith motto is to “Live each moment as an opportunity to worship God.” The lyrics of her favorite hymn, “Great Is Thy Faithfulness” expresses how she lives in awe and appreciation of the assurance of God’s constant presences in all that she does. In her ministries of service, care, worship and Christian education, Rev. KarenFay gives all glory to God. She is spiritually nurtured when gardening, enjoying music and the arts, flying a kite, laughing and spending precious time with her family and three dogs.
Her love for God is evident in the special programs and worship services that she plans, often using her talents on the accordion, piano, and ukulele to enrich these experiences. Her enthusiasm is boundless as she guides our youth in mission and presents lessons for young and old alike in her “Children’s Moments” during worship. Her undergraduate degree in Child Development serves as a foundation as she works with our children and youth.
