Portia Keena has served faithfully in Club34 for the past nine months.  She chooses to serve along side of me during the 9am service every week.  She selflessly gives her time in service to God, by showing up to help love on and lead by example the third and fourth grade children entrusted in our care.  She loves Jesus and it if visibly clear that she enjoys watching Him use her to make an impact in the life of a child. 


I had the chance to ask her a few questions about herself, read on to learn more about Portia!

I serve specifically with kids at Journey because our son, Hank had hurtful experiences at another churches. It was Journey Kids leaders that loved him back into loving church, and I wanted to be a part of that team!  Hank also serves with the kids, for much of the same reasons!

I have lived in San Diego more than half my life.
I have been married 31 years.
My son Hank is 17 years old.
Our favorite get-away is Disneyland for sure.
I love all things Mickey.  I have collected Mickey memorabilia since I was 16.
My favorite beverage is Iced Green Tea unsweetened from Starbucks.
My favorite food is Mexican, specifically Chips and Salsa.



Portia is also prone to sending me encouraging texts praising me for having allowed God to use me!  This goes a long way on a tired Sunday afternoon! It is a privilege to serve in Club34 with Portia!
