Sara Plummer, Director of Children’s Ministry
Sara grew up in Sapulpa and while attending church there she was the Youth and Children’s Director for about three years and taught Sunday School for about five years. She also worked in the nursery on Sunday mornings.
She loves working with kids because they constantly surprise you with what all they can comprehend and their understanding of the sometimes confusing and complex nature of God and His creations. They very often teach me. Their honesty and unguarded nature are always refreshing and often funny and they always make me smile.
My day job is working in the communications department at OSU-Okmulgee. When I’m not at my job or working with kids at church, I’m spending time with my family and friends, catching up on my favorite TV shows and movies, reading a book or attempting to get in shape.
Wes Wilson, Office Administrator
In addition to working with young people here in the U.S., my wife, Amanda, and I have recently made two trips on our own to Uganda to help strengthen our partnership by teaching inside a local ministry and orphanage.
During my time away from Christ Church, I work from home in Owasso as a professional writer and newsletter publisher. Amanda and I have been married since 2007 and have a 2 year-old son named, Palmer, whom we’ve inducted into the tradition of cheering for Oklahoma football.
