Minister of Children and Youth
Amy Armstrong has spent 14 years in the Triangle, much of that time supporting families of young children. She has worked in Durham and Orange counties with both Early Head Start and Child Care Services Association. This work has given her insight into child development as well as knowledge of our geographical area. She currently works for HELP (Health Equipment Loan Program), a non-profit that loans out durable medical equipment in Durham at no cost. She has served in a variety of lay leadership capacities at Watts Street Baptist Church in Durham and is known for her love of scripture and pursuit of justice.
Amy comes to us with a wide variety of skills and qualifications in addition to having a Master of Divinity degree (from Beeson Divinity School) and being fluent in Spanish. She also has skills in making balloon animals, building picnic tables for squirrels, replacing toilets and garbage disposals and baking apple pie! She is a self-proclaimed goofball who loves jigsaw puzzles, games and those weird little logic puzzles that everyone compares to the LSAT. She has been married to Joy Turner for 11 years and they have a 9 year-old daughter, Alysa.
