Caitlin C. Bomar

Director of Children’s Ministry

Caitlin joined the Idlewild staff in October of 2016 and is honored to be a part of the wonderful ways in which God is moving through this congregation to impact the community at large, particularly as it relates to helping children feel a sense of belonging and purpose as image bearers of God.

Caitlin grew up in Waynesboro, Virginia and moved to South Carolina in 2006 to attend the College of Charleston. Upon receiving her degree in Communication, she went on to become the Director of Children’s and Youth Ministry at Second Presbyterian Church of Charleston where she served for three years before marrying Kyle Bomar in 2013. Kyle received his MDiv from Memphis Theological Seminary in December of 2016 and is pursuing ordination in the United Methodist Church while serving as pastor of Somerville UMC.

Caitlin deeply appreciates how questions are valued as much as answers here at Idlewild, and is passionate about cultivating safe places for children and their parents to ask those questions. She knows no greater joy than getting to affirm to children their belovedness in Christ and welcome them into the critical role they have in the life of the Church here and now. She believes that parents and guardians are the primary faith influencers in a child’s life, and therefore desires to help equip parents and guardians with tools to embrace that role with courage and confidence.

In her spare time, Caitlin enjoys taking her two rescue dogs to Shelby Farms, trying new plant-based recipes, traveling, all things dark chocolate, capturing beauty in unexpected places through the lens of her Canon 60D, and attempting to resurrect the lost art of letter-writing! She and Kyle are expecting their first child November of 2018, and she will be out on maternity leave until mid-February 2019.
