Jerene Kay directs a ministry entitled The Son Seekers. It is designed to serve the seniors of the local community and Evangel Temple in their search for spiritual security, social interaction and support, mental stimulation and physical well-being. Seniors are an integral part of the church fellowship and are valued for their gifts and life experiences. The Son Seekers are encouraged to be "Rainbow Dreamers" cherishing each day and living each moment-- awake to all God has for them.
