Hello! My name is Lora Moeckel. My husband John, along with our two girls Olivia and Anna, love serving the Lord in our community. We moved to Pea Ridge from the Mountain Home area. I served at East Side Baptist church as Children’s Minister for almost 3 years. A year after having our oldest daughter, I believe God was calling me to stay home and take care of my children. God opened the doors and I was able to stay home with both girls. My family and I continued to serve at Eastside for 8 years after I was the Children’s Minister in which we were very involved. I have a Bachelors Degree in Children’s Ministry and Bible from Baptist Bible College. I also have a Masters Degree from Dallas Baptist University in Children’s Ministry. I believe children have a relevant place in the church today. They can learn about Jesus and can serve Him everyday. My main goal as Children’s Ministry Director is to make sure children are being taught solid Biblical truths in a fun and upbeat environment so they can develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
