Elise is excited to see the online ministry of IFI grow and to play her role as the Digital Strategies Specialist. She will research and test online communication and connection technology that can help support connections with students virtually. Alongside the online ministry team, Elise will help answer questions on the IFI website and on various social media platforms as well as host online Bible discussions.
Born and raised in rural New Hampshire, Elise always felt a pull to connect with the world. Through Youth With a Mission, she attended Discipleship Training School on a campus in Belize. For her outreach, she travelled to Malaysia where she worked in schools and enjoyed connecting with students. During this time, her focus was her relationship with God and understanding that He would always point her in the right direction. After teaching English in Beijing for a year, Elise was called back to her hometown. She continues to support local ministry and looks forward to working with IFI to enhance and support online service to internationals.
