I've felt called to ministry since childhood, but it wasn't until a trip to India my senior year of highschool that God solidified a call to missions. After a B.A. in Christian Education and an M.A. in TESOL and Intercultural Studies, both from Wheaton College, I was commissioned by GEM in March of 2018 to long-term service in Europe.
Trusting Jesus is a crazy journey, which lends itself to some crazy stories, but I can't imagine living life any other way! It's a joy and a privilege to share the hope of Christ with natives and refugees in Europe.
I will be working in Frankfurt, Germany, assisting with Café Hope, the Mosaik churches, and starting English classes for refugees and immigrants. While my initial "call to missions" centered on the unreached people of the 10/40 window, the Lord has expanded my view of His Kingdom to include all those who don't know Him. I'm excited to be a part of creating safe, relational spaces where refugees, neighbors, and locals can feel known and encounter the love of the Living God. I'm humbled to be a small part of God's redeeming work in Germany.
