High School Director
I have rural Nebraska roots, though my entire extended family lives in Kansas, and my mom is a Wildcat. I have walked with Jesus from a very young age, but God’s overarching narrative in my life is that He incinerates my expectations and shows up in big ways.
I met my husband, RJ, (married 2007) when we were teenagers and then we never left youth ministry. I have served in youth ministry for over a decade. Previously, I served on executive region staff with the American Baptist Churches of the Central Region focusing on mission work, youth programming, camping, and congregational health. I have taught communications and youth ministry at the collegiate level.
Paling in comparison, one of my greatest accomplishments is co-teaching cornhusking 101 with Brian Anderson on the weekends. I attended the University of Sioux Falls, and Baylor University for theological education. Rj and I have called Manhappiness our home since 2013. We have added a superhero to our tribe in 2014.
I am passionate about people, horses and kayaking. My heart beat is to inspire and equip rising leaders with the gospel of Jesus Christ. I am thrilled to be part of the NextGen team at Faith! Serving the High Schoolers of our community and being part of the Faith family is a HUGE blessing! Let us continue to follow Jesus on the journey He has set before us!
