Director of Family Ministries

Sarah VanderVort is excited to be the new Director of Family & Youth Ministries. She has a true desire to help create an environment where youth and families feel a sense of true belonging, inclusiveness, love and support as she walks with them on their faith journey.

Sarah VanderVort was born and raised in and around Portland, Oregon. Growing up she was introduced to both the Catholic and Baptist faith traditions. She came to know Christ in her teens and was baptized at the age of fifteen. When Sarah was in her early 20s she met and married her husband, Brian. They have lived in Anchorage, Alaska off-and-on for about seven years and recently moved from Houston, TX (where they lived for two years). They are beyond excited to be back in the Pacific Northwest and are looking forward to putting down the roots in Anacortes with their two sons, Aiden and Brenden.

Sarah VanderVort has her Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education. Although she always thought her gift of teaching would be served in the classroom, God has been pushing her into ministry for some time. In Anchorage she worked in Children’s Ministry and in Houston was offered a Youth Director position. Being a Family and Youth Director is the natural progression as she has a true desire to strengthen families and disciple youth. She knows God has big things planned for the families of Westminster!
