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 being a positive presence in the life of its precious young people.

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 May of 2017 and is pursuing ordination in the United Methodist Church. The couple lives in Millington, where Kyle serves as pastor of Embury UMC.

Caitlin deeply appreciates how questions are valued as much as answers here at Idlewild, and is passionate about cultivating safe places for children 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.

In her spare time, Caitlin enjoys taking her two rescue dogs on runs in Shelby Forest, savoring Phillip Ashley’s chocolates at every opportunity, and attempting to resurrect the lost art of letter writing!
