Hello, my name is Sally Bland and I'm the Children’s Ministry Director at Greater Portland Bible Church. I have been a part of GPBC since 1997 and have been a part of Children’s Ministry for over 15 years. I met my husband, James Bland, while in calculus class at the University of Washington. We have two amazing children, Isaac and Violet. When I am not at church I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, travelling, volunteering in the community, coaching chess and softball, and supporting the Huskies (Go Dawgs)!
I have always had a heart for children and really value what they contribute to our community. In Matthew 19:14 Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” This verse speaks to me and gives me passion to cultivate the spiritual lives of even our youngest community members! It is a privilege to walk alongside children and their families as we discover who God is and find our place in His Big Story!
Hobbies/Interests: Chess, traveling, scrap booking, reading, chemistry/science, math
