Coordinator of Children's Ministries
(317) 253-6461 | KGreen@SecondChurch.org
Kathryn “Kat” Green-Ross, a certified Christian educator, is the coordinator of Children’s Ministries for the church. Her call is to make space for all of the voices of God’s people…especially the children. Kat’s understanding of “church” is a holy collaboration for Christ that is playful, prayerful, and programmatically well integrated into the life of the church. Through Kat’s leadership, “Child Forward” programs remember that a little child will lead them. The children find a “child-sized bite” of mission, discipleship, fellowship, and study waiting for them. Whether it is a putt-putt Bible Study, or an Escape Room study of Paul’s travels, Kat will find a way to engage children in the tangible good news of a life in Christ.
Kat is a graduate of the University of the South, Sewanee (B.A. in French), Eden Theological Seminary (M.A.P.S), and the University of Missouri (M.L.I.S). Prior to her return to Indiana, Kat was the Assistant Director and Head of Public Services for Westminster College’s Reeves Library. She previously served churches in Texas, Kentucky, and Missouri. She began ministry at Second Presbyterian Church in June of 2016. Kat is an ordained ruling elder in the PC(USA) and a Certified Christian Educator since 2003.
She and her husband, Ken, live with their son Jack and Kat’s mother, Alice. They each have a grown son and daughter. Kat loves gardening, baking, painting, kayaking, soccer, hockey, and the beach! She has a passion for social justice and the radical transformative love of Christ.
