Courtney Crawford, Children’s Director

Courtney grew up in Villa Rica, GA as a child and recently moved back to the area.  She has been married since 2015 to the first man she ever dated.  My family and I have been coming to Villa Rica Christian Church for over 7 years.  Added to that, I’ve been a volunteer teacher for over 10 years at a church in Douglasville, GA and VRCC.  I enjoy acting, teaching, being creative, laughing, and seeing the smile on a child’s face when they come in contact with God.  I am thankful to be apart of the VRCC family, where my faith has grown and continues to grow.
