Julie Bodenheimer

Director of Children's Ministries

I have lived in Kansas City since 1977, and actually graduated from Park Hill High School, right across the street from Pine Ridge.  My Youth For Christ youth group met in Genesis House!  I graduated from NWMSU with a BS in Math.  I began working in Children’s Ministry at Pine Ridge in 2004.

My husband Karl and I have been married since 1990, and have three fantastic boys who still keep us busy. We joined Pine Ridge in 1996, and the whole family was baptized together the following year.  That is one of my fondest memories at Pine Ridge!

Teaching children is very inspirational; helping them learn about God’s love for them and others is truly one of the most rewarding aspects of working in Children’s Ministry. I am still amazed at how much I learn from teaching children!
