I became a Christian... at summer camp with my cousin's church the summer before entering junior high.

I started going to CrossPoint… when I was in Junior High. I started going to Liberty Christian and all my friends there went to Stoked Junior High Ministry. I've been here ever since.

Describe your job: I take care of the church’s website, mobile app, podcast, and anything for the weekend services (bulletin, slides, connection cards, etc.). I partner with our staff and ministry leaders to design graphics for ministries and events, to strategize the promotion of those ministries and events and to execute that strategy.  

What is a random task that you do that not many people know about? We have a large format printer (named Bessie or Bertha, depending on the day) on campus, so I take care of her and print all the banners, posters and large print outs on campus.

What do you want people to know about the church staff? We are one big family. We love to eat together, laugh together and, most of all, strive to follow Jesus together.

In what ways have you seen God move through your ministry? I love it when people come to me to say that they like something that was designed and published and I get to tell them that someone else made it. I love showcasing the talents, skills and gifts that God has given to other people. This past Easter, we got to showcase two very talented young women who have been gifted in different ways. They took time out of their lives to help us out and rally around the church through art. I love that!
