Hi, I'm Alex (Alexandra) Gifford, and I am living into all God has made me to be in this Children's Director position! I love Jesus, kids, and organization! haha I have been married to Andy for almost 30 years, and we have six daughters. We moved to Westcliffe in 2020 with our youngest two girls, ages 12 and 16. We love the community here, especially our Valley Bible family, and enjoy mountain living with our animals - two horses, three Colorado Mountain Dogs, one dachshund, one chameleon, and a gazillion cats!
I want our Children's program to be a place that kids want to come to, know they are seen and heard and loved, and also learn about their amazing God. I also am passionate about the young marriages in our church, and want to provide a night out for parents monthly, where these same kiddos want to come and have fun while their parents are out.
I was not raised in church, but came to Christ in 2007, and hold on to Him with all that I have. He has healed my heart, grown me, taught me, redeemed many relationships in my life, and made me new. I am all about breaking generational cycles of dysfunction through Christ, and becoming who we are made to be, living in the promised land of His freedom. Great is His faithfulness, and to Him be all the glory!
