Favorite part of your role at SCG?

My role at SCG allows me to interact with each department on a regular basis. This allows me to see what God is doing in each area of our church and share in the excitement of how that is making an impact for the Kingdom of God.

How did you get into ministry?

While owning my own business, I had reached the point in my life that I felt I needed to do more for God. My life was becoming more about my business and what the world viewed as success versus doing something that could have a longer and more meaningful impact. I felt that God could use me on a more relevant basis and during that waiting period in my life, God opened the doors and cleared a pathway for me to join the team at SCG.

Hometown:

One thing God wants me to share with others...

You can make a difference if you will just step up.  Many of us including myself think that we cannot make a difference so we don't attempt to help out.  Working on staff at SeaCoast Grace has allowed me to see and hear all of the wonderful things God is doing through people who just say "I will".  God can take your talents and put them to great use which often times makes a huge difference in somebodies life without us even realizing it is taking place.  Be open and willing at all times and you won't regret it.

What is your favorite word and why?

My favorite word is family. The thought of family and interaction with my family brings peace, perspective and positive thoughts to me. Family simply is the one word that has great meaning on every level of my life.

What makes you laugh?

Nothing makes me laugh; I don’t like anything or anybody so why would I laugh?
