Objective

My desire is to love wholeheartedly and serve the youth and families in the church, to be involved in their constantly changing lives, and to always point them to the great love and forgiveness that only Jesus can offer. I hope to reflect the great love and grace Christ has lavishly poured out on me as I lead, teach, serve, and grow in deep relationship with young people and their families, encouraging them to be "lights of Christ in the world." (Matthew 5:14)

Summary

"So you also, when you have done all that you were commanded, say, ‘We are unworthy servants; we have only done what was our duty.’” Luke 17:10
