ASSOCIATE DIRECTOR OF YOUTH & YOUNG ADULTS

How I came into relationship with Jesus Christ


My relationship with Jesus began my sophomore year of college. I gave my life to Christ during the summer as I was working at a Young Life Camp. When I came back to college, I got plugged into a local church where I grew in my relationship with Christ through a discipleship relationship, my small group, serving in our church and also as a Young Life leader.




What I do at Mosaic Community


My role includes helping students and young adults in our church grow in their relationship with Christ. I love connecting with girls in both ministries over coffee or a meal, or doing a book study and helping equip them in their relationship with Christ.




Why I do what I do


I have a deep passion and desire to see students and young adults grow in a deeper understanding of who Jesus is, how much He loves them and how He calls them to live for Him. I love seeing others grow in their love for Jesus and getting to walk alongside them in their journey. I would also say I do what I do because I get to partner alongside my husband David which for me is a God-sized dream come true!
