Arlene Decina, Chapel Teacher

May 15, 2017

As the Church’s Director of Spiritual Growth Ministries, Arlene joined BPC in 1995 along with her husband and two young children. After teaching high school science in Fairfax County Public Schools for 10 years, she made the decision to be a stay-at-home mom and became more and more involved in the life of the church. She served primarily in children’s ministry, and eventually as elder for Children’s Spiritual Growth, before joining the staff in 2002 overseeing Spiritual Growth Ministries for children and adults. In 2003, she gathered a team to begin a Godly Play program at BPC, and in 2013 became a U.S. trainer through the Godly Play Foundation. Arlene holds a Bachelor of Science degree in geology from Ohio University and a teaching certification in mathematics and science from George Mason University.
