Crystal Mazzuca

Director of Kids' Ministry

Discipling kids is one of the most incredible ministries that we are called to! Born and raised in Las Vegas, I was part of a church where I learned a lot about God, but never knew what it was to know God. I moved to the Northwest to attend Pacific Lutheran University where I received my Bachelor’s in Elementary Education. More importantly, this is is the time when I fell in love with Jesus and committed to following Him for the rest of my life.

There have been many ups and downs in my journey. I’ve spent time as a missionary in Swaziland, Africa and am the mom to three amazing boys. I’ve also battled Hodgkin Lymphoma three times and gone through an unwanted divorce. But what I know is that the love and grace of Jesus is more than sufficient to carry me though whatever comes my way and I long for kids of all ages to know that incredible truth!

While working on my Master’s in Christian Education Administration at Regent University, I was hired on part time at Westwood as the Elementary Coordinator. Just as I finished my degree, I was offered the position as the Director of Kids Ministry. I am so excited to be a part of the NextGen Team, to partner with parents to disciple kids, and to be a part of all the amazing things God is doing at Westwood
