This includes babies up through college-age students. Regardless of your child’s age, our Next Gen Ministry has something for them.
Our nursery is available for all services and provides not just a lot of love and cuddles but also a safe environment and Bible lessons for newborns through preschool.
Our elementary-aged Kids Ministry is a place where your child can come and be loved on, be taught about Jesus and kept safe. We have so many fun activities for this age outside of Sunday Services.
Our Youth includes students in Middle School and High School. They meet weekly for lessons, fun games, and food. There’s always food. It’s a great place for your students to connect with others and solidify their relations with Jesus.
We are currently building our college-aged group. We realize there is a need for young adults who have graduated from high school and are either away from home for the first time, or still at home but need more depth in their walk with God.
NEXT GEN STAFF
Hi! My name is Terri Humphrey and I’m the Executive Director. My family has been attending Envoy Church since October, 1999. My husband, Dwight and I are both natives of Colorado Springs and have raised our daughter and two sons here as well. Our now adult children and their families also attend Envoy Church. We have three grandchildren who are pure joy to us. We’re praying for more.
I graduated from Colorado State University in Ft. Collins with a degree in Business Finance. I worked in the mortgage finance field for many years and then was able to work from home on a part time basis to raise our children, On May 1, 2010, I began working full time for Envoy Church as the Children’s Director. I often tell people it is the best job I’ve ever had. Although I wear many different hats today, I am still able to keep my eye on the Next Gen Ministry, which makes me very happy.
My favorite day of the week is Grammy Day, where I watch (play with) my grandchildren all day long. My husband and I love to support them in all of their activities and sports. In addition our family loves to water ski and we are fortunate enough to have a ski boat. Our favorite vacation is a week on the houseboat at Lake Powell.
I was born and raised in Bowling Green, Kentucky, home of the Corvette. It is a small town, and everyone pretty much seemed to know everyone. I grew up in the church, thanks to my mother, and gave my life to Jesus when I was 10 years old. I met my husband, Jason, in high school, and after dating for five years and graduating college, we got married in 2005. I moved to Murfreesboro, Tennessee, to complete my graduate degree at Middle Tennessee State University while he finished up his undergraduate degree. We moved to Colorado Springs, Colorado in 2008 and have been here ever since! We love it here! We were blessed with one child, Oliver, who is 12 years old. Oliver enjoys playing baseball, basketball, and is currently trying out wrestling. As a family, we enjoy hiking, watching movies, miniature golf, disc golf, and any other fun things you might find outside here in Colorado!
I have an undergraduate degree in Psychology and a graduate degree in School Psychology. I have been working as a school psychologist in a local school district since we moved here in 2008. I love working with children (and families) and helping them with their academic and mental health needs. I have attended Envoy Church since 2014 and came on staff in 2019. I love worship music and our small group/life group. God blessed us with an amazing group of friends that we get to do life with. An interesting fact about me is that my love language is school supplies, or as my husband lovingly refers to them, “nerd supplies.” Back to school time and fresh, colorful pens make me happy!
Hello, I am Sadrie Overall the Children’s Coordinator! I am from a small town in South East Kansas, with a population of 6,000. I have had a love for Colorado ever since I was a little girl. I never could have guessed God would bless me with the privilege of living here. My passion for serving the Lord and furthering his kingdom has always been my desire but never a priority. I took the leap, summer of 2022, and worked at Camp Como. I discovered the Holy Spirit while working at camp and allowed him to fully consume my life. Through intentional prayer for God to use me, I felt guidance from the Holy Spirit that I should apply for the Children’s Coordinator position at Envoy. I was attending NWOSU with full intent on going to Chiropractic school in August of 2023. A handful of interviews later, I accepted the role with complete confidence that this is where the Lord wants me. Telling my family I was moving to Colorado Springs to pursue a position in ministry was not an easy conversation. I am the only believer in my family and me going into ministry was not accepted. I was faced with difficult decisions and getting here was full of obstacles. Only with God’s helping hands I made it, and I feel so extremely blessed. I am so grateful to be able to say I LOVE my job and I wake up everyday eager to allow the Lord to use me and love your children.
Fun Facts: My favorite animal is a Unicorn, I love Coffee and Plants, and Health and Wellness are large priorities in my life.
I grew up at Envoy church, back when it was called Sunnyside. I grew up mountain biking, camping, and four-wheeling with my and my Dad’s Jeeps. As a high school student I decided I wanted to go into full time ministry as a career, and attended Ozark Christian college from 2010-2014.
Janie grew up in Fairplay, Colorado, spending most of her free time helping her dad at Camp Como. She loves camping, hiking, and anything that has to do with being out in God’s Creation!
Janie and I met at Ozark Christian College in 2013. After nearly two years of trying, Janie finally agreed to a date with me, and we got married in October of 2015. Shortly after, I took my first full time ministry job as a youth pastor in Carl Junction, MO. Janie finished school, and started working as a 6th grade special education teacher in 2016. Our first child, Asa was born in 2019, and our second is on the way!
We decided to move back to Colorado, and I had the privilege of coming back to my home church in July of 2022. I am so blessed to serve at a place that played a huge part in shaping me into who I am today. Janie and I are excited for all of the things happening here, and in Colorado Springs, and couldn’t be more excited to be a part of it!
