What do you do at Calvary?

It is a joy to teach and care for the women of Calvary while overseeing ministries that help them follow Jesus and connect with other women.


How did you become a follower of Jesus?

I grew up in a Christian home and knew about Jesus all of my life.  I chose to follow Him as a young child and began using biblical principles as directions for life.  As I matured, I learned that following Jesus is not about completing a good-works checklist but daily pursuing a relationship with Him that results in the best life possible.
