Hi, my name is April Tackett, I was born here in Tulare, my dad was in the Navy, so we lived ALL over, 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 and we’ve been together ever since, we have three children together, our youngest Madalyn can be seen running around Quest Kids while serving in the TK classroom.
I am your Youth ministry administrator here at TFBC and I have been loving this position for a little over two years. 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.
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 I get to serve your children and thankful for those I get to do this ministry with.
