Ministry Passion:
People! The relationships we create together. I am passionate about the relationships we are able to help children create with Jesus.  I was raised in a small family church and I remember how the adults in the Church would pour into me, allowing me to ask questions, showing me how to read my bible, and including me in worship.  I want all children to experience the love that comes from a Church family that supports seeking out the Way, the Truth and the Light.
Favorite Bible Passage:
Psalm 127: 10 “Children are a gift from God, They are His reward.”
John 10:10 “My purpose is to give life in all its fullness”
About Me:
I attended Lake Lucerne Bible Camp for 5 summers to learn how to share the good works of Jesus through being a clown.  We learned to make balloon animals, and how to juggle, we had to bring costumes, learn  how to put on professional greasepaint makeup.  Then we would go to area nursing homes, parks, or community centers to share a smile and the word of God with others.  It was during this time that I committed my heart to the Lord.

Ministry Passion:
I love to see things grow and go for the sake of Kingdom expansion! I love the FUN that God has for us in this life, so bringing the truth of our identity in Him to life for kids is a blast for me.  I am also on fire to “go and make disciples” through online connections and relationship.
Favorite Bible Passage:
Matthew 4:19-20 “Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.” At once they left their nets and followed him.”
About me:
I love to do almost anything social (love to be with people), especially board games & social media! I am usually itching to be on the go, but you’ll find me quiet & still if I have an epic movie (with the popcorn) or a good book.
