Amanda Shoemaker

Fun. Energetic. Compassionate.

Amanda has a heart filled with compassion, and will go out of her way to help fill a need.  She has a heart that serves quietly and generously, and she does it with energy and joy; sometimes she’s like an energizer bunny – her batteries never run out! She loves to laugh and have fun, and brings a lightness to any circumstance.

She’s from North Webster, Indiana; married to her husband Curtis; and they have a little girl, Amelia. Amanda loves being a mom and is passionate about nurturing kids, but not just her own – she has a huge heart for the younger generation. She loves traveling, experiencing new adventures, and seeing new places. As a family they spend time enjoying the outdoors by biking and camping; Amelia is even a big fan of it, too! At Vineyard, Amanda is our Kingdom Kids Coordinator, which means she oversees all organization and administration for our children’s ministries Infant – 5th Grade. She also provides assistance to teachers in preparing lesson plans; recruits new volunteers; and preps rooms for activities and classes. If it’s a part of our children’s ministry, she most likely has a part in it!

In her lifetime, she would like to serve in an orphanage; and visit all 50 states with Curtis & Amelia – before Amelia graduates.

Her favorite scripture is Psalm 90:14 which says, “Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days.”
