Cathleen Demant

Gs kids director

Cathleen has been the Director of GS Kids since 2013, when she quit her job as a labor and employment lawyer to do ministry exclusively.  Since then, her ministry at Good Shepherd has been in a constant mode of change and innovation to meet the needs of the growing and changing Good Shepherd Community.  


Cathleen has a post-it on her computer screen that asks the question: "When a kid leaves GS Kids, will they reflect on the way they were regarded and treated and know that it came from a special kind of love that can only be explained by Jesus?" This is the question that underpins every GS Kids experience.


Cathleen and her husband Joel have two boys: Dane and Levi.  She is learning to play the piano, and loves singing, dancing, and especially reading.
