Hi, some of you may know my name but not my face and others know my face but not my name so, let me introduce myself..
My name is April Tackett, I was born here in Tulare. My dad was in the Navy, so we lived ALL over the continental US, but came back to good ‘ol Tulare when I was in 1st grade and have been here ever since. I went to both Tulare Union & Tulare Western, I know! I know! I met my husband, Matt in 2005 and as they say the rest is history, we’ve been together ever since. We have three children together; our youngest Madalyn who is now in High School, can be seen running around Quest Kids while serving in the Kindergarten classroom.
Over the last couple of years, I have been the Youth Ministry Administrator here at TFBC and I have loved this position. Being able to pour into our youth makes my heart smile and feeds my soul all at the same time. Spending time with these kiddos over the years and watching them grow in their faith is what this ministry is all about. And I’m here for it! I may spend my days at TFBC, well and some nights, but it’s the smiling faces and the quiet moments where these kids give their lives to Christ that makes the days and long hours (at times) so worth it.
Recently, I have been given the opportunity to work alongside our Pastoral staff as your new Executive Pastoral Assistant, and I am looking forward to serving our church and its sweet members in this new role.
When I’m not here at church or in the office, I love to spend time with my family and friends, reading or listening to music, and watching a good movie (as long as it’s not a chick flick, if you want to watch one of them, ask the hubby he’s all for ‘em!)
But at the end of the day, I am extremely grateful that I get to serve you and your children, and I am even more thankful for those I get to do ministry life with.
