My Story:Just a small town girl who made her way to the big city of Kansas City where I met and fell in love with my high school sweetheart, Jason. While in high school, I knew two things for sure: that I wanted to serve Jesus and that I wanted to get married and have a family…and that is what I did. I was part of the local church, serving in a variety of volunteer roles. I started ministry in a children’s ministry role. I love children. I love helping families. This seemed to be a natural fit. In this time, Jason and I began a non-profit organization (Forever Yours Ministries). FYM focuses on helping marriages be all that God created them to be. We give couples the tools and resources to strengthen their families.
After several years in children’s ministry, I felt a tug on my heart to become a pastor. Not entirely sure what that meant, I surrendered to that calling and graduated from Indiana Wesleyan University in 2011 with a degree in Pastoral Ministries.
In 2014, God called us from our comfort zone in Overland Park, Kansas to Allentown to begin the next chapter of ministry. We are excited to see how God will use us to reach Lehigh Valley with the love of Jesus Christ!
Favorite Scripture: Ephesians 2: 8-10
Family: I am married to my high school sweetheart and we are celebrating our 20th year of marriage. We have 4 beautiful children: Brooklyn (19), Jordan (18), Colton (17) and Kailyn (15).
Hobbies: I love reading, photography, and scrap booking. I enjoy spending time with friends and date nights with my sweetheart.
Favorite part of your job/ministry: My favorite part of ministry is the people. I love building relationships with people and doing life with them – rejoicing in the good and praying through the not-so-good.
