I wake up each day in awe that our amazing God would use me in a small way to share His gospel message with kids and their families. I am blessed beyond measure to serve as the Christian Education Director at Belgrade Alliance Church, serving kids, their families & our amazing volunteer team. I have worked in children’s ministry in various capacities for over 20 years. Currently, I am a student in the Alliance LEAD program, working towards completing that program to become licensed in the Christian & Missionary Alliance.

My family is one of my biggest joys in life. I have been living life with my husband Jim for 28 years. Isaac, Chris, Grace & Sam call me mom and Marcus and Estrella call me grandma.  Countless others call me “Momma Millie” as they were in our home as foster kids during a difficult time in their lives.

I am a simple person. I don’t get excited about material things, and value experiences over things. Moments that take my breath away are what I treasure.  Moments of laughter, tears, good times and hard times. Moments of “real” transparent, transformed life.

Time outside hiking, biking, camping, fishing, kayaking & traveling on mission, are how I relax and spend my free time. I have a heart for service, wear many hats, but most importantly, I am a life changed by Jesus.

People often ask me how, I can keep up with everything, and my answer is “I can’t”.  It is only because of the power of the Holy Spirit that I can even begin to do what I do. I strive each day to become less, and to give everything to Jesus, and He takes care of the rest.

In Him,

Millie Veltkamp
Christian Education Director
