Additional information

I am most passionate about my relationship with Christ, serving Him in anyway that I can, and letting Him transform me daily. I love gathering, preaching, teaching and equipping others to have this type of relationship with Jesus too.

I have a variety of ministry experience from youth to young adults. I love to study God's word in order to encourage people to be transformed by Christ and to develop and equip others to serve their God-given purpose. I also enjoy welcoming and connecting people into God's community.
