Kendra SzpilaDirector, Children's Ministry, Wilkinsburg Campus
Kendra has long had a passion for working with young children. After spending her college summers working at a camp for children and adults with disabilities, Kendra felt that God was calling her to the field of specials needs. Following her graduation from Messiah College, Kendra moved to Pittsburgh to attend the University of Pittsburgh and obtained her Masters in Early Intervention. Kendra has spent the past 12 years working with infants and toddlers with special needs and their families.
When Kendra and her husband, Jerome, found The Bible Chapel three years ago, they felt right at home and immediately fell in love with the ministry the Bible Chapel provides in serving the children of Wilkinsburg.
Kendra and Jerome live in Penn Hills with their two energetic boys. They adopted their youngest son through foster care and hope to foster again in the near future.
