Jesus is everything to me.
And I want every person on this planet to know just how much he loves them.
On a snowy night in January 2004, I received a phone call from the youth pastor of our church that would have a significant impact on my life. He asked if I would consider directing our children's ministry program. I'm a "yes" person, so without hesitating, I dove right in. About an hour after the call, I began wondering how I would teach Bible lessons to a group of children that knew more about the Bible than me.
And that was the beginning of a cool journey.
I directed children's ministries at Northwest Bible Church from 2004-2014.
During my first year as director, I led the church's first Vacation Bible School.
God has blessed and grown that program each year since, and now it is an event that reaches hundreds of children, volunteers, and their families.
VBS is the highlight of my year, and together with a fantastic crew of volunteers,
I have the privilege of working year-round to keep it thriving and serving our community.
Working in ministry has given me the opportunity to connect with Group Publishing in Loveland, CO. Since 2009, I've served as an independent contractor for Group... training church leaders and volunteers. It's the best!
The heart of Group is to bring people closer to Jesus, and so is mine.
His plans for us are good.
His grace and love are life-changing, now and for eternity.
What a gift it is to share that with others.
My favorite verse - 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18...
"Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus."
