What do you do at Calvary?

I teach, mentor and counsel college students. I also meet with people for individual and group spiritual direction


How did you become a follower of Jesus?

I grew up in the church and prayed to become a Christian a number of times throughout my childhood. My faith became my own in 5th grade. During this year I remember actually meaning the lyrics of the worship songs I sang. I also switched from attending a small Christian Elementary school to attending a large public Middle school. This was a really scary transition for me and I remember seeking strength, courage and comfort through prayer and reading scripture.
