About Children's Ministry

Every child is a blessing from God – an added arrow to your quiver. And here at AAEC we want to connect children with Christ and partner with parents to enthusiastically guide kids towards a heart for God. Together, we can nurture our young champions to grow in a lifelong walk with God. And we count it a privilege to serve and teach children by sharing the Word of God in creative and fun learning strategies. Just one Friday spent with our Children’s Ministry may well catapult you into your next breakthrough. For more info, email This email address is being protected from spambots.

I have been blessed to serve Our Lord For twenty eight years. In this time, I have worked in many ministries, with over twenty years teaching the Gospel to all ages. My early years I worked in early childhood development, teaching and developing curriculum for all ages. Later I worked for the Department of Health & Human Services in North Carolina, developing work programs for children with special needs. My family and I count it a joy to be here with the families at AAEC, working together in the Lord. I've been married to Don Gramby for thirty years, laboring together and raising our family in the Lord.

I am a South African who came to the UAE in 2015. I was raised by my grandparents who were devout church members who taught me the value of never missing a church service. I attended Walter Sisulu University, and while there I began to develop a personal relationship with Jesus, which led me to accept my Lord and Saviour in baptism. I am married to Kenny Hlongwe and have two beautiful children. I am so honoured to be a staff member at AAEC and I get both excited and scared at the same time to see how God has been working in me and using me for His Glory. I have recently discovered my calling in working with broken families and that has led me to study Community and Health Psychology at the University of South Africa. I believe that working in the Children's Ministry is God's way of preparing me for what is to come. I am enjoying developing Bible-based curriculum and seeing the positive effect it's having on the children here at AAEC. I am blessed to see Matthew 28:19 ("Therefore go and make disciples of all nations") come forth in my life.
