Lillie Thomas II, Ministry Associate; Director of Children and Youth Ministries
 
As of April 5, 2021, Lillie Thomas II is the newest addition to the CCPC staff. With experience in technology and various forms of ministry, she leapt at the opportunity to lead and empower an impactful youth department in her local community. Teaching Sunday School, Bible studies, and starting a Bible club in high school was the start of her heavy involvement in ministry. As a founding member of student ministries on three Maryland college campuses, she partnered with other campus ministries, professors, and staff, promoted events, represented the organizations to the Student Government Association, and taught on evangelism and led prayer, facilitating the growth of the campus ministries and influencing students for Christ.

After earning her Master’s degree from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, Lillie assisted the Riverdale Ministries, including Mommies and Me, Youth Summer Camp, and English as a Second Language. She lent her experience and expertise in Bible studies to a Bowie congregation, training members to teach Bible studies and tracking the number of Bible studies taught by church members. Along with teaching and facilitating Bible studies, she’s led small groups and Ladies Ministry.

Eventually, she returned to Baltimore to assist with the Youth and Outreach Ministries, as well as sing in the choir. While gaining professional experience in the Corporate Event Production Industry, Lillie prayerfully considered taking her ministry experience to the next level with CCPC as Ministry Associate and Director of Children and Youth Ministries. As a new addition to the team, Lillie looks forward to cultivating an environment for spiritual growth and close-knit community.
