Passionate. Yes, that’s the word used repeatedly to describe Mary Sutton’s enthusiasm for sharing the love of Jesus Christ and the truths of Scripture with children. In fact, this passion led Mary to leave her career in public education so that she could more directly teach children about God, especially the many children in Massachusetts who have had virtually no exposure to the Christian faith. Mary brought SuperKids® to Whitinsville, Massachusetts, in 2004. In addition to working directly with children, Mary has had years of experience coaching others on how to minister to children.
Mary is married to Charlie Sutton, a retired pastor who supports and participates in Mary’s work with both PrimeTime® and SuperKids®. Mary and Charlie have been life-long readers of Encounter with God, too! Charlie and Mary have 2 married children and 5 grandchildren. Camping, biking, and reading are some of the ways Mary finds refreshment in her busy schedule. Mary holds degrees from Hope College, Holland, Michigan and Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, South Hamilton, Massachusetts, as well as a Post Baccalaureate Certificate in Early Childhood Education from Framingham State University. Please contact Mary if you are interested in learning more about Scripture Union resources and training opportunities.
