I have been attending St. Mark's for over 10 years. I have served in many volunteer roles and joined staff in 2018. I first joined as the High School Coordinator, then added the titles of Children's Ministry Coordinator and then Director of Family Ministry. I LOVE MY JOB! It is a blessing to speak into families and students the love that God has for them. I am SO EXCITED to come alongside Word Of Life and help with Confirmation.
● I have been married to my high school sweetheart for almost 22 years.
● I have a son Noah, who is a junior in high school and a daughter, Avery who is an 8th grader.
● Coffee & tacos are my favorite (let's get coffee & talk about life!)
● I have 2 cats, 2 guinea pigs, and 2 lizards. There is no more room for pets in our home.
It's all about Jesus all the time! We want to know Him in all things we do and find opportunities to make Him known. He is the foundation for all things we do. Prayer, scripture, and teaching every single week!
"How am I growing closer to God in my every day life?"
Jesus has the power to change lives for the better. When we know that lifechanging power, we know God's purpose of equipping and calling us.
"What are my strengths? What's my purpose & how am I fulfilling it?
We should focus on building relationships with others fed by our living relationship with Jesus. Having deeply-rooted friendships within our church community will help us to build friendships outside of church.
"Do I know my small group? Have I developed a core group of friends?"
We serve the people of God by making disciples. We're more than just a youth group! Instead of looking at ourselves, we want to be outward-facing to those around us.
"Do I know my neighbors? Do I serve the community and care for others?"
During large group time, Cultivate and Anthem will both be hearing very similar messages - just presented a little differently. We will talk about real life things and how our faith relates to those things. God and the Bible are right here, right now things! We want to equip students to incorporate their faith into each day. We will discuss the following topics:
I HAVE QUESTIONS: a series on just that - doubts & questions!
WITH YOU: a series on friendship
GOOD THINGS: a series on Christmas
DISTINCT: a series on identity
JUSTICE 4 ALL: a series on justice
ATOMIC: a series on spiritual habits
BREAK TRIAL: a series on Easter
GUIDING LIGHT: a series on wisdom
