Estrella Jacobsen

Children's Ministry Director

Hi, I'm Estrella Jacobsen and I am so excited to be serving as the Children's Ministry Director. I was born in Manila, Philippines but grew up in Southern California. My family has been part of Bethel Church since 2004. I am married with three kids: Ashley, Shawn, and Matthew. I also have a new puppy, Bear, who is the newest member of our family.

I am a nurse with a degree in Early Childhood Education. I worked at Bethel Christian Preschool for 8 years as a Lead Teacher and Designee Director. Aside from serving as Children's Ministry Director, I also currently work for Olentangy Local Schools as a Clinic Nurse. My husband Roy and I work at the same elementary school.

We were introduced to Bethel through the preschool program, where both my boys attended. I knew immediately that Bethel was going to be a second home to us. My family and I have had many opportunities over the years to grow closer to Christ by serving in the preschool, VBS, Sports Camp, Sunday School, Church For All People, and IHN Dinners.

As Children's Ministry Director, I am so excited to be able to create a space for the children of Bethel. My goal is to help them grow in their love of Christ and provide a base of learning, prayers, friendships, and fun.
