Audra Chaney is currently the Director of Student Ministry at West Park Baptist Church working under the supervision of Pastor of Student Ministry Patrick Hobbs. She is honored to serve in the very ministry that was so influential in her faith journey as a middle/high school student. Through various service, teaching, and discipling opportunities with students, Audra feels led to encourage and support the generation after her to fall in love with Jesus and value Him above all else.
Her ministry goal is to provide students with the resources and a Christ-centered environment to become disciples who are rooted and established in God’s love, so they can be a light for Jesus in their schools, friend groups, and homes. The Student Ministry at West Park Baptist Church seeks to teach, train, equip, and support students to know the love of Jesus, be the love of Jesus, and let this love transform their lives from the inside out.
“And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ.” Ephesians 3:17b-18
