What does your job encompass?
I assist the Collegiate Ministries' Director and Campus Missionaries throughout the state so that we can reach and disciple college students with the gospel. This includes organizing events for both our leadership and college students as well as managing reporting, budgets, and other in-house items.
Describe your journey to working for MBCollegiate in this capacity.
I began working at the MBC in 2014 for Partnership Missions. Shortly after, the Convention reorganized which landed me in Disaster Relief until 2018. In 2018, I found myself working for Collegiate Ministries. I really enjoy knowing that we are affecting the next generation for Jesus.
Tell us about your family.
I met my husband, Dustin (m. 2009), in high school, and we both attended Hannibal-LaGrange University where I played softball. After graduating, we lived in the St. Louis area for five years before returning "home" to the Jefferson City area. We have two spoiled dogs, Digger and Bailey. They are the best!
What do you love about your job?
Campus missionaries, college students, and my work environment.
What excites you most about college ministry?
Getting to impact the future.
