For most of my childhood, my dad served on a church staff and was heavily involved in ministry. While I was blessed to grow up in a Christian home with a basic understanding of the gospel, this unfortunately also means that there were a lot of opportunities to be hurt by the church. We moved churches several times, making it difficult for me to find a solid community in church that matched my natural community at school. When I reached sixth grade, we finally landed in a church that we stayed at until I graduated high school. I went to a summer camp when I was thirteen years old, and while there, a speaker helped me to better understand my sin and need for a savior. It was at that time that I made a public profession of faith and was baptized. The church my family attended had a youth group and offered mission opportunities, both of which helped to solidify and strengthen my faith. I believe that God continued to bring me to faith from the time I professed faith at thirteen until I reached high school or college.

During college, I was blessed with an incredible church called Crosspoint in Clemson, SC. This church opened up doors for discipleship and evangelism training, allowing me to be involved on Clemson's campus and in the community. Through connections at Crosspoint, Micah (my husband) and I learned about a new church plant in Boston called Redemption Hill Church. Redemption Hill Church was planting and launching just as we were set to move there for Micah’s new job in the same city. Our experience helping to launch RHC shaped our passions and family life to consider how God has gifted us in unique ways to serve smaller churches and church plants.

Micah and I started attending CF Northwest (then called, The Church at Blue Ridge) in January of 2017. We had originally moved to Taylors and planned to join CF Cherrydale. However, Micah soon met with Ted, a former pastor at CFNW, to learn about a new church plant in Blue Ridge. Because of our experience helping RHC in Boston, we felt led to join The Church at Blue Ridge and continue using our gifts and experience in church planting. For two years, I led the children’s ministry at CFNW, and now I currently focus on raising my own kids and serve on the A/V team once a month. We also host a Missional Community group led by Strib and Mary Crump. I am thankful for the community with CFNW and how they have cared for us while we have fostered, moved, added a baby, and dealt with health emergencies.
