Middle School Pastor –
I was born in Australia, raised in Canada, currently living in America and have traveled around the world for ministry and mission trips. My worldview has been shaped by many experiences at home, abroad and by my parents. They have shown me God’s heart for the nations, love for the Body of Christ, compassion for people and what real, passionate and living relationship with Jesus Christ looks like. I grew up as a “PK” (Pastor’s Kid) and now an “MK” as my parents are serving as missionaries in Africa. The rest of my immediate family live in Canada where, yes, there is such a thing as cold, white fluffy stuff called: snow (you may even catch me saying “eh” once in a while!).
I have a background in television ministry and before coming to CCF, I was working for a national television show called, “Context with Lorna Dueck”. I am passionate about Jesus being declared through media! I have been involved in many exciting ministries including 100 Huntley Street, Heaven’s Rehearsal, World Embrace, One Homeless Night, Crossroads Missions and others.
In 2007 God gave me a passion for tweens that, of course, continues to this day. I have developed a magazine and mentorship curriculum for preteen girls, serve on the Tween Gospel Alliance and am excited to be pouring into tweens at CCF!
I began encountering the presence of God and feeling His call on my life as a preteen. At the age of 13 God lit a fire in me for Him and I started speaking in the hallways of my high school to those who would listen about relationship with Jesus Christ and what He did in my life! As God opens doors I continue to speak at camps, churches, conferences and events for both men, women and youth of all ages. It is my desire that everyone has a personal, passionate, life-changing relationship with God and lives life loud for Him.
I love my family and enjoy writing, learning, broadcast, creativity, travel, reading, nature and so much more! There is so much to love about life— especially the One Who made it!
