• Donna Cady – Financial Assistant

    After working for a government agency for 26 years, little did I know that my next job was to be called to Northminster, where I've been serving since January 2005. It did seem rather fitting since I come from a family of many pastors, including both of my grandfathers.  I count it a pleasure to be able to come to a place of worship every day to serve and work alongside other followers of Christ.

    My other and most important calling is that of a wife to Ken for over 20 years and mom to our son Christopher.  We enjoy our vacations to the beach, visiting train museums and working side-by-side on our many projects and hobbies.

  • Sasha Childs Kids Ministry Coordinator

    I was born in India. I grew up in Peoria, IL. When I was in 7th grade the Lord gave me a heart for children and missions. In 2002, I graduated from Peoria Christian School. Since, then the Lord has led me to be involved with missions and ministry all over the country. Here at Northminster I have the opportunity to serve the Lord with a team of people who love Jesus, love people and want to come alongside the children and families in discipleship.

    I also have the opportunity to be a lunch helper and sub at Northminster Learning Center. In my free time, I love being outside going on walks, camping in a tent, sitting by a campfire doing worship.
