Born and raised in Central Texas, I grew up surrounded by the boundless love and opportunities of God through his love and the dedication of Temple Bible Church. Making the most of their many opportunities, I started training in how to share the good news with kids at the age of 13. Through this I discovered a love for walking beside people and helping them grow and develop their gifts. This love and delight was only multiplied as I was able to spend my summers in Ukraine, working with a church to once again grow and develop volunteers to go out and share the good news.
By God instilling me with love and perspective, I went into college determined to find a way to live a life that not only utilized my gifts, but furthered the God’s purposes that I had seen demonstrated over and over. Through the efforts of programs such as the Perspectives course (which I took three times), teaching English to Chinese students remotely for over three years, as well as the opportunities to continue to travel and lead others in their pursuit of Christ, God was able to reveal the path of ministry mobilization.
Not quite done learning, I was able to spend all of 2020 working on my Masters of Theology through Fuller Seminary. God gave me a curious brain and a love of stories, something that is evident to all those who meet me! After graduating, God was working within me and bring the ministry of IFI right to my door, and through study and prayer, presented me with the opportunity to work at IFI as a Ministry Coordinator.
- That the new and growing Austin team of IFI is able to grow in the upcoming year!
- Through all the ups and downs of ministry work, that my eyes and faith remain fixed on God, and his love and promises.
- That the promises detailed in Revelation 7:9a are fulfilled: “There before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the throne and before the Lamb.”
