I grew up in the heartland of Ohio, in the arms of parents who taught me that a love for God and a love for others was intimately connected. I traveled to North Park University out of curiosity over what that connection meant for me. It was there that I realized, God had created me for ministry. Aren't we all? He has given me a desire to see captives set free, a passion to see the outcast and marginalized. And He uses my brokenness to do it. I'm thankful to be a part of a church community and a larger faith community that seeks those same things.
Here at Faith I'm honored to work with our youth and young children. We provide programming and relationships geared towards helping our students seek out how to live their one lives for Jesus.
