Welcome to The Perch! We’re really glad you stopped by to take a moment to refresh and recharge. This is a blog about Girls’ Ministry by Amy Pierson, Becca Benson, and JJ Campbell (me!). Becca and I are sisters and Amy is our first cousin, but we are basically all three sisters! Together we are the creators and writers of The Perch

The Perch is birthed out of our deep love for the Lord and desire for teen girls across the planet to know Him. We believe that God works in the lives of teen girls in major ways and uses them for great purposes. That is why girls’ ministry is important. And we believe that girls’ ministers, small group leaders/volunteers, parents, and teen girls play a huge role in the work God desires to accomplish in the lives of girls all over the world. 

We are excited to share God’s truth, our passion, encouragement, challenges, and our experiences with you. We hope that you come here to rest and leave with renewed energy to continue the fight! God created us to be better in ministry together. So we pray that you will join us in this journey!

Want to get to know us a little better?

Meet Amy. Amy is a 30-something who has deep passion for mentoring and encouraging women of all ages. She travels all over to speak to girls and train small group leaders.  She worked in girls ministry at Prestonwood Baptist church for a number of years. You can catch her playing with her cute kids, trying out a new restaurant with her hubby or having people over to her house for dinner.

Amy is full of God given wisdom and she's hilarious. She wrote a Table for Two: Doing Life and Savoring Scripture Together, a practical book on Mentoring that you should definitely check out.
