Which aspect of Christ Community Chapel’s culture resonates with you the most? (know, grow, serve)
Know – I am someone who grew up outside of the church and as Jesus stepped into my life everything changed. I am drawn to the heart and vision that everyone deserves the opportunity to see Jesus clearly, know him personally, and then step into a life of growing, serving, and helping others come to know him too.
What is something no one would ever believe to be true about you?
I have shared an elevator with Vanilla Ice.
In what ways are you a leader? In what ways are you a follower?
I think that to be a healthy and effective leader requires being a faithful follower. I hear Paul saying, ‘follow me as I follow Christ’ in mind as I think of this. Every person has influence on those around them and is called to step into that. Our circles of influence may be different, but we are all called to lead in the contexts we have been called to. To do this we have to trust and follow Jesus and those he has placed over and around us. I hope to lead with clear and strong vision of the Kingdom advancing, pointing towards God and his glory, to follow with humility and faithful obedience, and trust to Christ.
If you could master one skill you don’t have right now, what would it be?
I would love to build furniture.
What are you doing when you feel most like yourself?
I love being a part of seeing people’s trust and love of Christ take root and grow. I also love being in a hammock and reading Narnia (and other similar stuff).
