Director of Young Children's Ministryoffice: 919-834-3425, ext. 221

Gwen began her call at White Memorial in December 1994 and would tell you the years of service have been a joy and a privilege. Gwen's focus is children ages 2 through kindergarten. During the week she can be found in W314 or the Luther building, communicating with parents, teachers, and colleagues, creating materials, designing educational space, planning workshops, children's worship experiences, and gathering resources for Church School. Sunday mornings are a highlight, when Gwen enjoys growing in faith and love with adults and children at White Memorial.

Gwen holds a Bachelor Degree in Elementary Education from Miami University and a Master Degree in Educational Curriculum and Supervision, also from Miami University. Her current hobbies include swimming, biking, running, writing, wooden puzzle-making and travel. She is married to Andy Whiteman. Gwen and Andy have three grown children: daughter Allison and her husband Gavin, and son Andrew.
