I am thrilled to be on the team at FUMC as the Children’s Ministry Director and Worship Coordinator! I’m newly married to my wonderful husband, Micah, who works at Sterling College, our alma mater.  While at SC I  double-majored in Vocal Performance and Theatre Performance and minored in Youth Ministry.This is my first full-time ministry position, following a year as an intern with Fellowship Bible Church in Topeka, KS, in their student ministry.

I’ve always been involved in the church growing up, and began volunteering as a teenager with the children in my home church in Eureka, KS.    In the summers, I started a summer program called Flint Hills Follies, which was designed to give kids in my rural hometown a chance to learn about theatre in a healthy, Christ-centered environment. Then, in the summer before my junior year of college, I became a camp counselor with Heartland Camps in Parkville, MO. There, working with 1st-3rd graders, I received my call into ministry.

Soon after, I added the Youth Ministry minor and became involved as a volunteer with Connection. I am thrilled to be coming back to Sterling to invest in the lives of children and their families, and I am so thankful to God and to the church community for providing this opportunity!

I am excited to work with the people at Sterling UMC!
