Leaders - Brittany Porch, Erin Wise

Come hear about two churches that have created a “Prayground” or an intentional space for children and their families to worship in their sanctuaries. Both of these churches have evidence of success and have developed best practices over the 5+ years of experience. Erin and Brittany will talk about how it all got started and what it looks like now.

Brittany Porch has a Masters of Arts in Practical Theology from Columbia Theological Seminary and is a certified Christian Educator in the Presbyterian Church (USA). She serves as the Director of Mission & Education at Broad Street Presbyterian Church in Columbus, OH. She is married to Trip Porch, pastor, and together they have two children Ward (6) and Arden (2).

Erin Wise is the Director of Children's & Youth Ministries at Covenant Presbyterian Church in Columbus, Ohio. For twenty-five years she has been accompanying youth on their faith journeys, sharing the mysteries of God with children, and supporting parents in nurturing the spiritual lives of their children. In 2020 Erin guided Covenant and launched her dream to fully welcome children in worship. When not working, Erin enjoys teaching dance fitness, walking with her rescue dog and her mom, and sharing meals with her husband, 3 teenage children & their friends.
