Mimi Larson

About Me: 

Mimi Larson is the CRC's Children's Ministry Catalyzer with Faith Formation Ministries. One of Mimi’s greatest joys is being with people, learning with them, and encouraging them on their ministry journey. For over 20 years, Mimi served in local church ministry in both small and large churches and has written curriculum for Faith Alive Christian Resources, Big Idea/Veggie Tales, and the 50-Day Spiritual Adventure. Mimi, her husband Keith, and their very spoiled but sweet rescued pit bull Millie, live in the Chicagoland area.  
If you have questions or challenges about faith formation in children, choosing curriculum, equipping volunteers, and more, contact Mimi at [email protected].
