Meet the MCCC Staff

Bryan Weide,

Madison Baptist Pastor

My name is Jenn Nowak and I have been part of the Madison Baptist Church family for over ten years and worked in the Children's Center from 2007-2011 as the after-school coordinator. I started working with children in 1995 where I stared at the Prescott YMCA with their after-school program. Through my YMCA career I had worked in many different capacities; after-school program, after-school coordinator and a site director for a small child care center. After moving to Phoenix in 2007 my heart was drawn to Madison Christian Children's Center because of the staff's love for the children and families. In the early part of June 2014 the Lord opened the door for me to return to Madison Christian Children's Center and it is my honor to serve as the Director of the Children's Center.
