Michele Forrider serves as the Director of Children’s Ministry. After serving in TMC Kids for many years, God opened a door to ministry and clearly called Michele to serve Him at The Moody Church in December 2016. In this role, Michele provides vision, direction, and oversight for the various children’s ministries from birth through fifth grade. Because each child is a gift from God, Michele is passionate about investing in the lives of the precious children that God brings to The Moody Church. Her vision for TMC Kids is to partner with parents and caregivers to raise kids that would come to truly know, love, and serve Jesus and commit their lives to bringing Him glory. Michele lives with her husband, Joe, and daughter, Hannah, in Chicago. As a family, they enjoy road trips, visiting baseball stadiums across the country, and reveling in all the activities that Chicago has to offer. Michele holds a BS in Elementary Education from Cleveland State University.
