Personal Statement

I believe God is at work in the lives of His people. He has been shaping and molding me since I accepted Christ at the age of 8 years old. He made me into a usable vessel so that His glory may be seen in those I work with and minister to on a daily basis. Since following God’s lead in college and seminary 15 years ago, I have had the privilege of working with children, teenagers, college students and young adults in churches, schools and counseling centers. It is my desire to continue to serve God through the ministry of discipleship and counseling by encouraging, equipping and enhancing the lives of those I meet. Guided by the principles found in Scripture, I am convinced that we can learn from any and all circumstances as we align ourselves with God and live victoriously with our Lord Jesus Christ.
