“I am passionate about how the gospel changes people forever. When people really start to understand God’s love for them expressed through Jesus Christ they start to think and act in totally new ways! I am amazed and grateful that I get a front-row seat in what God’s doing in so many people’s lives.”

“I am convinced that God wants Christians to be “life long learners.” We are constantly being taught by Jesus through the Holy Spirit especially through His word and through our purposeful fellowship with other Christians. Not only have I found that God does not want “loner” Christians, but that He particularly works in our lives when we humbly open our hearts to fellow believers in Jesus and support one another through prayer and encouragement as we follow Him into the world.”

“I love the fact that there are no insignificant people in God’s Kingdom. He pursues us in the midst of the messiness of our lives and embraces us as His children. Then, He loves us enough to invite us to be a part of what He is doing in the world. It is my joy to be able to share this message of God’s unmovable love with teens, children, and their families in this community.”
