Betty Kruitbosch is the Children’s Pastor at WellSpring Community Church and has been working with children for almost 35 years. Betty came on staff in 2002 as part time Pastoral staff.
Betty has a strong desire for children to grow in the Lord and be used of Him right now, not just when they grow up! Her enthusiasm for children is contagious.
She plans to continue going where God leads. Her hope one day is to take the kids on various mission trips. Eventually she sees herself having more grandchildren to spoil (and having to dye her hair more often!).
Betty is married to “the most wonderful man in the world,” Richard. He and Betty live in Fonthill and have four children and four grandchildren!
