I started serving in JAM when I was 10. Serving helped me realize that this is what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. My job is a dream come true, and it’s an honor to help train up the next generation of Crossroads.

I am grateful for all of the people who God has sent to encourage me and equip me for ministry. I graduated from Southwestern Assemblies of God University in 2022 with a B.A. in Church Leadership. During my college years, I had the opportunity to intern at River City Church and here at Crossroads before I was hired on full time in 2021.

I couldn’t do any of this without the support of my family. My husband, Riley, is at my side every Sunday. My daughter, Evelyn, spends her Sunday mornings in the nursery where she gets loved on by the best group of volunteers. Riley and I couldn’t pull off Sunday mornings by ourselves. It takes so many teachers and helpers who selflessly volunteer their time to God, the church, and the kids.

One thing I often tell my students is that they are “never too young.” Never too young to lead. Never too young to serve. Never too young to make a difference. Never too young to have a deep relationship with God. I am blessed to get to teach them each week.

Crossroads has watched me grow up. They’ve prayed over me countless times. They’ve always supported me in my endeavors. It’s a genuine joy to be back here serving some of the people I love most.
