We launch Gospel-centered churches and outreach initiatives

Miranda Laughlin

Miranda here! I cannot begin to express my joy and delight to join The Philip Center team in the role of Summer OFF Director. When my family and I first worked with Summer OFF in July of 2015 we fell in love with the community in Providence and the “Parks to Plants” initiative. After many months of prayer, support raising and planning we are thrilled to be moving to the greater Providence area from Dallas, TX in the next few months.

I have a background in camp ministry, being a Program Coordinator for a youth residential camp outside of Colorado Springs, CO for a number of years. (My husband, Derek, and I met working at camp!) The past 6 years I have worked as a teacher and instructional coach at an urban elementary school near downtown Dallas. It is a bittersweet good-bye leaving our friends and family in Texas but we are eager to get started at the work the Lord has for us in New England. Derek will be directing Paradigm Biblical Counseling Center upon our arrival in Providence.

Derek and I have been married since 2010 and we have two young boys, Dietrich who is nearly 3 and Kristoph who is 9 months. And of course I can’t forget about our very old and beloved terrier named Teddy. Our family cannot wait to get to Providence to begin doing life with all of you!
