Assistant Children’s Pastor

Powder Springs, Georgia has been my home since I was little. At five years old, I knew that I loved Jesus and wanted to live my life for Him. Yet, my sophomore year of high school, the Holy Spirit truly softened my heart towards the immeasurable grace and love of Christ. That year, I dedicated myself to serving the Lord as I promised to remain faithful to His Word and attentive to His gentle leading in my life.

When I was a child, I gravitated towards those whom I felt needed a friend. I have always desired to make others feel heard, known, and loved. In high school, I began to recognize that a large sect of those yearning to be heard were under the age of thirteen years old. I served in the kid’s ministry at my church, quickly discovering that children are thoughtful, compassionate, and capable of so much more than we oftentimes believe. Therefore, as I headed to Lee University for college, I knew that I desired to work with kids for the rest of my life. I wanted children to feel heard and understood as I sought to challenge their hearts and minds in an age-appropriate manner.

Lee University provided many opportunities for growth, and I soon found myself plugged into leadership positions both on-campus and at my local church. I recently graduated with a major in Discipleship Ministry and a minor in Children’s Ministry. The Lord truly blessed me with a chance to serve you here at Mount Paran North as your Assistant Kid’s Pastor—I am so thankful for the chance to love on your sweet kiddos!
