Cheyenne McLean, 33
Early Childhood Ministry Coordinator for The Venues
Charity: Gathering Friends
Cheyenne McLean left her career as a preschool special education teacher and a parent educator to become a stay-at-home mom. But she quickly realized that wasn’t working out, and she needed to identify the problem and find a way to solve it. “It was hard intellectually,” she says. “I had a career with a lot of feedback. I had the perfect baby, but the baby didn’t say ‘thanks’ or ‘good job.’ I guess I was used to feedback and didn’t realize how motivating it can be.”
She found the necessary support with Women Warriors, a group within The Venues church that helps a new cause every month. “I needed a community of women to help build up and to be built up,” she says. “I was able to connect with like-minded women serving the community.”
She also found something else at The Venues: her new career. Cheyenne now serves as the Early Childhood Ministry Coordinator, a role she says she never expected but that she has grown to truly love.
“I’ve learned a lot about my relationship with God and children more so than when I was a teacher,” she says.
