Juanita Collier, Comfort Care Ministry Director

Juanita Collier is our Special Care Coordinator. She helps and supports the teachers with children with special needs by redirecting their behavior with movement, fidgets, or simply taking a walk out of the classroom to allow the child to self-regulate, if possible. She also recruits volunteers to help on a rotating basis. Juanita has served at the church for about 15+ years. She has a B.S. in Early Childhood Education, she is a Certified Montessori Teacher, Montessori Teacher Trainer, Positive Discipline Facilitator, and a United 4 Hope Co-Coordinator. She is the Director of School Partnerships with the 510 Foundation, the nonprofit outreach arm of the church. She loves it when a child talks about the love of Jesus by sharing a scripture or answering a question in a way that shows they are not ashamed. It is powerful. Also when she is at school and hears a child talking about God and telling other children about him. “You can’t see him, but he lives in your heart.” Psalm 139 is her favorite of scripture.
