Katy Ailstock has been serving in Presbyterian churches with her husband the Rev. John Ailstock for the past 21 years. Born and raised southern Indiana, Katy attended Hanover College and graduated from Indiana University with a teaching degree in theatre and speech. After graduation she moved to Charleston, South Carolina and has since lived in Louisville, New Orleans and the Maryland-Pennsylvania area.  In 2004 the Ailstock Family followed the Lord’s calling west…all the way across the country, today they couldn’t be happier to serve God anywhere but in the great state of Oregon! 

Katy was given the opportunity to teach a Vacation Bible School class at her childhood church, First Presbyterian, Bedford, IN, when she was just a 6th grade student. She has been leading children in learning about God’s love and grace ever since. She enjoys helping children, parents and adult volunteers build their relationships with God by learning more about Jesus and praying for the Holy Spirit’s guidance in all that they do.

Katy is thrilled to be serving God at Calvin Presbyterian Church and hopes she will soon to be connected with you and your child through Sunday School, and the many children's opportunities at Calvin
