Hi, my name is Jen Antley and I oversee the Toddler Room here at Calvary Chapel of Delta. I grew up in Jarrettsville, Maryland. Currently, I live just over the state line in Whiteford, Maryland, along with my husband, TJ, and daughter, Savannah. Our family has been fellowshipping at Calvary since the summer of 2010. Savannah enjoys being involved with the Senior High Youth Group here at Calvary. We are truly blessed to be part of such a loving church body.
A little about me…
I enjoy getting to know the Lord more and more each day. I love spending time with my family, no matter what the activity. I enjoy the outdoors and using the ability that the Lord has given us to take in all of the beauty of creation. I love gardening, especially with perennials. I have worked in the horticulture field for over 15 years. I am also an animal lover and am very grateful that the Lord created them for us! I also enjoy making things out of stained and fused glass.
A little of my story…
After 35 years of going my own way, being rebellious and not believing, I finally submitted and gave my life to Christ in August of 2010. The Lord used many people and circumstances to draw me to Himself. I was placed in a close working environment with a believer who was walking with the Lord. She did not have answers to many of my questions, but I knew there was something different about her life. I also believe that the Lord opened all of the doors for us to buy a home close to Calvary Chapel of Delta because I believe that He wanted to draw me to Calvary to hear His word taught line by line and verse by verse. The Lord keeps his promises: “So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.” (Isaiah 55:11) In August of 2010, I surrendered to Christ and learn more of His truth every day.
I feel so blessed to have the opportunity to work with the toddlers. They are amazing little people. I genuinely feel as though all of the children are extended members of my family. They are all so wonderfully different! It is so exciting for me to have the opportunity to watch the little ones grow and learn. It is my hope that they all feel loved and comfortable in the toddler room. I hope to make going to church a great experience for them. I also want their parents to be confident when they place their child in the care of the toddler workers, knowing that the child is cared for by loving servants of Christ.
I am so joyful to be a part of the Children’s Ministry here at Calvary!
