"For the majority of my life I said that I would never work in a Church because growing up as a Pastor's kid, I had seen a lot of unpleasant drama that can happen behind the scenes in many Churches. However at Bible school, as I began to really fall in love with Jesus I began to see how beautiful the Church really is, not because it's people are perfect, but rather because Jesus has made it beautiful. I get so excited when I get to spend time with youth and see them genuinely trying to follow Jesus and that's what I want to be a part of. To walk beside youth through all their struggles and say, "Hey, let's follow Jesus together."
