Natalie Griner

Natalie grew up in Council Bluffs, IA in a family filled with love, laughter, and music.  She made her way to A2 while still in college at Nebraska Christian.  After graduating in 2013 with a completely different degree, she found herself pulled towards investing in the smallest hearts of God's Kingdom.  She's been the A2Kids Director since 2015.  She and her husband, Lyndon, have two of the best kids around, Evangeline and Finn.  Her favorite part of her job is also the most exhausting part - Vacation Bible School.  Natalie loves teaching children about how much they are loved by the One who created them and seeks to instill a deep and honest faith in each and every A2Kid.
