Additional information

I am an ordained minister in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) currently serving a United Methodist congregation. My family and I live in DFW, Texas, and we are pretty tied to the area due to my husband's career. I have been passionate about youth ministry from the moment I received my calling to ministry, and I foresee youth ministry being a life-long vocation. I am a firm believer that youth are not just the future of the church but are the church of today. When we pour into student ministry and equip students to go into the world knowing that they are called to love their neighbors as God loves them, we are building a stronger church for the here and now.
