Meet the Director
College students captured my heart when I served for six years as the Associate Director of Baptist Collegiate Ministries (BCM) at the University of West Florida and Pensacola Junior College. While I served there I also had the opportunity to take classes with New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary (NOBTS). Upon finishing my term with BCM, I moved to New Orleans to finish my Master of Arts degree in Christian Education. In February 2010 I attended a ministry fair at NOBTS and connected with Kirk Ritchey, the Western Pennsylvania Collegiate Strategist for the North American Mission Board (NAMB). Then, I graduated in May. After a process of interviewing, prayer, and seeking counsel, the next chapter of my life has begun in which I have the privilege of serving as a Mission Service Corps (MSC) missionary through NAMB. I am the new director of New Life Collegiate Ministry on campus at California University of Pennsylvania (calu.edu). Cal U is located 35 miles south of Pittsburgh in the town of California, which is how this state university gets its name. I endeavor to make a difference in the lives of college students and to help integrate them into local churches.
As a self-funded MSC missionary, I am developing a support team and inviting people to join me prayerfully and financially to help me start my ministry and keep it going. Your partnership can make a difference for Christ and in the lives of college students at Cal U. I would love to share more about this amazing opportunity with you.
The verses that have been closest to my heart in this time of preparation and support raising are Colossians 4:2-4. Will you pray these verses with me?
