Welcome, Sara!

Northminster's New Director of Children's Ministry

Sara Potts is excited to be the new Director of Children’s Ministry at Northminster Church. She brings with her 15+ years of experience in ministry and education. For the past 14 years, Sara served as the Chancel Choir Director at Sharonville United Methodist Church, and from 2007-2020, she taught choir, dance and music theory at Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy’s Upper School.  Before that, she directed the choir at First Presbyterian Church in Glendale, OH, and taught K-8 music at Miami Valley Christian Academy.

Sara is a Cincinnati native, who holds a BA in music with a vocal emphasis and a dance minor from Otterbein University, and a Master of Music in Choral Conducting from UC’s College-Conservatory of Music. She has volunteered as a youth group leader at Mt. Washington Presbyterian Church, where she grew up, and has volunteered for many VBS programs, as anything from director of preschool music to emcee. Sara has also enjoyed volunteering and teaching music lessons in her own children’s preschool classes right here at Northminster.

Sara, her husband Brian, and their three children (Michaela, 8, Evan, 6, and Jonah, 3) live in Wyoming, where Brian is the choir director for grades 6-12 in Wyoming City Schools. Michaela and Evan both attended preschool at Northminister and Jonah is looking forward to his opportunity to do the same starting in the fall.  As a family, they love to explore the outdoors, whether it’s gardening at home, going on hikes, or having fun on every playground in Cincinnati.

Sara hopes to bring excitement and engagement to the Northminster Kids program for both children and their families. She is passionate about spreading the love of Christ and giving kids and parents ways to experience it firsthand and share it with others by learning, growing, worshipping, serving, and having fun together in a vibrant faith community.
