Riverside Staff & Elders
KIDS MINISTRY COORDINATOR
Alyssa has lived her life in this beautiful state of Florida. After being born and raised in Miami, she moved to Fort Myers in 2015 to pursue her Bachelors degree from Florida Gulf Coast University. After graduating and spending some time with family in central Florida, she decided to return to Fort Myers in 2021 and plant true roots.
Amidst her previous occupations, Alyssa always prioritized being involved in church community. After Hurricane Ian hit this city, Alyssa worked disaster relief and clean-up, praying about the next step. This position was a consistent thought pressing into her prayers, and she joined the staff as Kids Ministry Coordinator in 2023. She assists our NextGen Director, Janet-Lynn, in all things "KidMin" and seeks to support families however she is able.
Alyssa's primary hope and goal is for the youth of Fort Myers to be provided with the foundation and truth of the gospel so they can make firm and educated decisions about their relationship with Christ.
You can find her petting any dog she sees (with permission from their human), drinking tea or coffee, and trying her hand at any available craft. She loves to hike, swim in the Florida Springs, go shelling on Sanibel, and simply partake in the millions of things God created for the joy of His people.
