In February 2014 I joined the Church Doctor Ministries family and have been serving as the Young Adult Coordinator for SEND North America since June 2014. I am from Capac, Michigan, a small farm town in Michigan’s “thumb”. After I received my B.A. in Arts Management in 2012, I wasn’t quite sure what God had in store for me. Feeling called to music ministry, I took a call in Traverse City, Michigan as the Director of Youth and Music. God used that ministry experience to teach me so much, some quite surprising! In my limited view of how God calls us and uses us, I assumed that I would serve in the music ministry with passion and joy, but the youth ministry would be, to be honest, just a “part of my job”. Well, God has a sense of humor, and my ministry with young people brought me more joy and excitement than I could have ever imagined!
When I relocated to Indiana to live closer to my future husband, Zack, I felt God may be calling me to continue serving Him through young adult ministry. I had no idea how perfect God’s timing really is! I learned of Church Doctor Ministries and SEND and was immediately interested in getting involved with their ministries! I was enamored with SEND, knowing that this 10-month Christian discipleship experience helps other young adults like myself find who they are in Christ, learn about their calling, and serve God in amazing and meaningful ways. I believe SEND truly changes the lives of young people; I feel so blessed to be a part of this ministry! I have never before felt more confident that I am right in the center of God’s will and purpose for my life.
