What events or factors have shaped you and led you into ministry? (How did you get to where you are today?)
I was involved in leading various ministry groups all through high school and college but at that time I never seriously considered the option of full time ministry. When I graduated from college I enrolled in a one-year seminary program in Laramie, WY called The WEST Institute with the desire to simply grow in my own knowledge of the Bible and my ability to disciple others. God used that year of study and discipleship to transform my life. He gave me a passion to see others grow as I had grown. After I graduated from seminary God opened the door for me to join the staff in Laramie. I served there from 2011-2019 and had many opportunities to teach, disciple, and fill various administrative roles. I see my role at Colonial and Shepherds Institute as a perfect extension of the work God has done in my life over the last decade and I am excited to join the staff here in Cary.
