Laney Stayton
Teach Us To Worship Coordinator 

In one way or another, children’s ministry has always been a part of Laney Stayton’s life–starting as the child of a pastor and missionary, then through volunteering at her local church as a young adult, and now as a mom of three. After taking a quick detour as a certified shorthand reporter in Texas, the Lord called her to serve as the children’s ministry director of her church in Chattanooga, TN. After serving her church for almost 8 years, the Lord provided an opportunity for her to serve the PCA by becoming the program director for a new grant-funded program, Teach Us To Worship.  She is excited about the opportunities her new role gives her to support churches and help them consider the Biblical call to worship as a covenant family!


Heather Dirkse
Teach Us To Worship Creative Assistant

Heather Dirkse is the Teach Me to Worship creative assistant. She will be working alongside other team members to enhance and create Teach Me to Worship resources that will equip church leaders and their families as they work to intentionally engage children in worship. She is excited to be a part of supporting and growing churches as they endeavor to give their children a lifelong connection to the covenant community of believers.
