Children Ministries

Nina Teio

Nina Teio has been married to Sonny for over 15 years with three children – Jordan(12), Andre (10) and Sarina (4).

She has a Bachelor of Design(Spatial Interiors) and is a qualified secondary teacher(art). Nina Teio has served in various churches in Auckland in the areas of youth and children’s  ministries.

Her most recent role was with a South Auckland Church in the children ministry that grew from less than 20 kids in one service to over 150 kids over three services. Nina demonstrated great leadership skills, developing a team of volunteers from 1 helper to a team of 30 helpers from the ages of 10 years and older.

Nina moved to Snells Beach at the start of 2016 but she is no stranger to the Mahurangi area where she visited frequently to their family holiday home in Algies Bay when she was a child herself. Her father would regularly take Nina and her twin sister out on the water in their P Class boats.

She has a real passion for the future of the church – the children. Nina is convinced that if we can provide an environment for our children that they grow spiritually and enjoy a healthy relationship with Jesus Christ, then our church and the local community are in good hands.

“He called a little child to him, and placed the child among them.  And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.  Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.  And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me.” 
Matthew 18:2-5 NIV
