ALIVE! Kids Directors

Michelle Cox-Skocz

Resource & Outreach Coordinator

Kristen Sarno

Admin. Assistant

Kristen assists the staff with the “behind the scenes” things so that they can concentrate on their respective ministries. She loves being able to help others in this way. When they have someone to take care of the details, they are more free to be able to use their own spiritual gifts to further God’s Kingdom. She graduated from Word of Life Bible Institute (Pottersville, NY) in 1993 and has been very active in children’s ministry, youth ministry, worship ministry, and church administration since then.

Kristen lives in Vandergrift with her husband Jody and their two younger boys, Robert, and Alex. Kristen likes to spend some of the little free time she gets on photography, scrapbooking, and sewing.
