It is with great confidence that I can recommend Maria Brannen as a Kids Ministry Specialist.  After working with churches for 50 plus years and working closely with Maria 20 of those years, I can definitively say she is the best Children’s Minister I have ever worked with.  She is always well prepared and thorough in her planning and always serves with excellence.  She will be a great asset in helping your ministry to children.

Dennis Rogers, Retired  Specialist, Discipleship and Family Ministries, Georgia Baptist  Convention

Maria Brannen’s passion for seeing kids and students grow in their faith is a passion that’s contagious!  As she shares that passion with parents and leaders, Maria does more than ignite within them an excitement for discipleship.  That excitement is fueled by confidence as parents and leaders walk out of a training session feeling equipped to disciple others.

Vicki Hulsey,  Childhood Education Specialist, Tennessee Baptist Convention

Maria is uniquely gifted to help churches develop and grow a healthy children’s ministry.  Her experience and expertise as a minister is evidenced by the manner in which she uses hands-on activities to reach well-defined ministry goals.  Our children’s ministry was enhanced by the time she served on our staff in an interim position.

Maria Brannen brings a transparent and genuine approach to ministry that is refreshing, yet thought provoking.  If you need someone to equip your leadership,  Maria Brannen is the person to call!
