Additional information

For the past 10 years, I have been a leader in EXCITING and GROWTH-DRIVEN youth ministries. From local churches to mega-churches like Elevation Church, I have grown, studied, poured-into, multiplied & sustained several amazing youth ministries as a leader & intern. I firmly believe now is the time that God is calling me to step into my OWN youth ministry to cultivate, grow with, and teach students just exactly what it means to have a deep & fruitful relationship with Christ. I am deeply passionate about the next generation--but serving & discipling them in the PRESENT. God has already given them gifts; it's our job to train them up in the way they should go. Let's have some fun & disciple kids together!
