Daniela Chillemi

Acting Director of Children's Ministries

Daniela  grew up in Atlanta, Georgia.  In her early 30s, God used her passion for learning to draw her into a Bible study, in which she gave her life to Jesus. Her passion for children's ministries began when she saw loving people caring for her own children and from volunteering for Vacation Bible School.  As the Acting Director of Hillside’s Children's Ministries, she desires that every child that comes to Hillside know Jesus and draw closer to him every time they are here.

Daniela graduated from Georgia Tech with an Engineering degree.  She served as director of VBS and worked for 3 years as the Children's Ministry Director at Dunwoody Community Church.  Since moving to California, 10 years ago, she has taught children's Bible Classes, volunteered for VBS, taught and co-written ladies Bible studies and has coordinated staffing for children's ministries.

In 2018, Daniela and her husband John celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary. Their greatest joy has been raising their four children Jack, Olivia, Paul and Annabella.
