Kids & Family Vision

Our priority is to present the Gospel in a way our kids will never forget. We want our kids to experience the WONDER of a loving Creator who restores a world beset by sin. We want our kids to ENCOUNTER the person of Jesus Christ who gave His life to rescue them from eternity without God. We want our kids to WITNESS the passions of believers, living in community, empowered by the Holy Spirit to embody the Gospel.

Kids of all ages are welcome. Each Sunday, we have a time of worship, teaching, sharing, learning and praying, all enveloped in the presence of the Holy Spirit. The rhythm of the day is uniquely catered towards each age group.

While our time with your kids on Sunday is intentional in sharing the Gospel, we believe that much of Jesus’ story is portrayed through a life together. We are dedicated to providing you and your family with sacred spaces to live in community within our Reality SF family. We believe this partnership will develop through meaningful relationships, educational and biblically sound resource, spiritual counseling, Community Groups, and a variety of seasonal family events and activities.

Kids learn in the context of relationships, when their lives intersect with others. While kid’s most significant relationships are with you at home, they have a better chance of understanding and interpreting life-changing truth when multiple influences are all saying the same thing. Our volunteers are trained and equipped to share the love of Christ and the truth about how God sees each child. Our volunteers are like shepherds and mentors for our kids, desiring to see each kid grown in their love for Christ.

Amber Williams

Amber refers to herself as a California girl with an East Coast heart that once lived in the mountains. After living in DC and Wyoming, Amber was ready for the next thing and thought, “why not San Francisco?”. She has been working with families for 7 years and in 2013 became a certified postpartum doula. She will continue to work with the families of San Francisco until God says otherwise. Amber’s desire is for all children to have truth spoken into their lives so they know the grace and love of their Creator. In San Francisco, as it is in Heaven.

Daniel Goodwyn

Daniel grew up in Texas in a church-going family. His mother led him to the Lord when he was five. In 2008, while serving in a prayer ministry in SF, God gave him a heart for The City, and the people in it, both the Church and the lost. Throughout his life, mentors have poured into his life by teaching him about God, and his identity in Him. Daniel hopes that God will use the folks at Reality to pour into the kids at Reality. Daniel is happy to be in SF and blessed to be able to serve here!

Grace Kim

Grace is a Texas native with an appetite for life as big as the state itself. Grace began attending Reality in 2012 when she moved to SF and has been volunteering with The Village since 2013. The kids seem to welcome her as their own! Grace now understands and deeply respects her mother’s patience in enduring her endless stream of questions as a child. She feels blessed that God has provided her with a passion for teaching and an opportunity to communicate the joy of knowing Him with people of all ages. Grace is fueled mostly by macarons and frozen yogurt.

Iman Hall

Reality has been Iman’s home church since 2012. She enjoys building relationships with 2-year-olds as a volunteer in The Village. Even the youngest kids hear what she says about God’s love and she is enthused to be part of their walk with Jesus. Iman has seen the kids grow tremendously, so much that they have become less reluctant to depart from mom and dad while exploring their independence. Reality has been a great community for growth and her desire is to show the love of God in deep, personal ways to the lost through this community.

Ian Rountree

Ian grew up in Florida and lived in Tennessee for ten years, but he has always been very close to his (agnostic) aunt and uncle in SF. The city he knew through them was ostensibly devoid of the Christian community that was in his lifeblood in Nashville. When he moved to SF in 2012, his biggest fear was settling for a skeletal church with non-scriptural teachings. He was led to Reality where he saw glimpses of God’s plan for SF. Ian volunteers with The Village to train himself for fatherhood and also to help parents and children see the city he sees.

Bernadine Lui

Post college, Bernadine moved back to her hometown of Walnut Creek for 8 years before moving to SF. In those 8 years, she built community with friends who started having kids and found great joy in watching her friends’ kids grow. As a result, she began serving in the church’s nursery to be able to play and care for them on Sundays. In January 2013, she moved out to SF and joined Reality where she wanted to continue serving in the same manner and has enjoyed seeing The Village grow into what it is today.
