What do you love about what you do at NH?
That it’s all about connecting. I love that I get to leverage technology to reach as many people as possible with the Good News.

What year did you join staff?
I joined staff at New Hope Church in Fall (September) 2016.

How did you come to know Jesus?
Like many who attend New Hope, I was raised Catholic and attended Catholic school my entire childhood. I always believed that there was a God, but it wasn’t until college that I heard that it was about a personal relationship with Jesus. It was almost like a lightbulb went off. But coming into a true relationship with Him was really a process. Little by little, I decided to release my life, my circumstances and my ideals over to God. It was with the help of a few faithful family members, new close friends and a loving God that I get to brag about who Jesus is!

What’s your favorite Bible verse?
Proverbs 3:5-6, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.”

What was one of your most defining moments in life?
One of my top 3 has to be when my son was born. If you have kids you know… from that moment on everything changes. Being a parent is one of the best responsibilities and biggest blessings that God could ever give me!

What is a skill you’d like to learn and why?
To speak another language (or three). I love that it would allow me to connect with other people on their own terms and more within their comfort zones.
