I am living, breathing and enjoying life at the beach in Pacifica, CA. We moved here in June of last year to do a re-start of our ministry called, Life Equipping Community, where we live life with 9 interns (aging from 18-31.) Our ministry is all about pouring into the next generation, intense discipleship is what I like to call it.
My husband and I do ministry together. Always have and always will. We just like it better that way. It’s way more fun. A teeny snapshot of our ministry experience is as follows:
- Gordon-Conwell Seminary
- Planted Grace Fellowship Church in Danvers, MA
- Co-planted Coast Vineyard in San Diego, CA
- Planted Hosanna Community Church in Encinitas, CA
- Pastored at Risen King Community Church in Redding, CA
- Currently full time missionaries with CRM (Church Resource Ministries)
And a lot more in between.
I feel like I am now living my dream job. I get to walk with, coach, train and disciple next generation leaders almost every day. I am also invited in to the leadership team of ChurchNext, the collective of CRM that is all about equipping new and current leaders in the church to make a difference, in their setting and in the world. I can’t believe I wake up in the morning every day and get to do this. I am indebted to our financial partners that enable me to do it. And, I am grateful to God for giving me the experience and knowledge to be able to step into this leadership role.
I am a definite foodie. I love to cook. I love to eat. Nutrition and health are a big deal to me as I have had a crazy journey finding good health. So I take it all seriously.
I have three great kids that are married and all live in Idaho. I also have 4 amazing grand kids.
