ERIN SKIFTER

Erin Skifter - Faith Kids Director


Erin’s first Sunday at Faith Christian Church was when she was 5 months old. Her dad, Glen Jackson, was hired as the senior pastor and the family moved from Brownsburg, Indiana to Simi Valley to start their new life. Her dad pastored Faith Christian Church for 28 years prior to his death in August 2008. By growing up in church, Erin knew that her good deeds couldn’t save her but it didn’t really sink in, so she spent her childhood trying to look good and know all the answers. When she was 14, a teacher, who was also a pastor’s kid, confronted her about what he saw and she was immediately convicted and repented. Erin has been married to her husband, Lance, since February 2007, and they have twin sons, Elijah and Samuel. She finds her Bachelor of Arts in Teacher Education from The Master’s College to be useful in children’s ministry. Erin believes it is never too early to read the Scriptures to your children and you don’t have to be a pastor to have God as the centerpiece of your family. While most of her time is filled with the joy of being a mom to twins, she does enjoy reading, painting and practicing hospitality when she gets the chance. Erin’s favorite Scripture is 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”
