What do you do at Calvary?

I help lead the Middle School Ministry at Calvary (Grades 6th-8th). Each week we invite students to engage with Jesus, friends, and caring leaders together. I have the honor of shepherding middle school students at Calvary, with an emphasis on the female students. 

How did you become a follower of Jesus? 

As the kid of a pastor, I spent the majority of my life in and and around the church building. However, it was not until my final years of High School that I actually began to understand the gospel that gathered the folks that filled the building. Through the pursuit of intentional relationships and actually opening my Bible with a sincere hope to understand, Christ became more than an idea I heard about, but a very real God that cared for me in a very real way. In these moments I chose to embrace my need for this perfect Savior, accept Him as the most essential part of my life.
