Born and raised in Sacramento, CA, I have always been around church. My parents would take us to church weekly, but they were very involved in our spiritual formation from a young age. There wasn’t ever a specific time that I remember the Lord drawing me to Himself, however I would say He did that over time from a very young age. All throughout my childhood, teen and college years, I was involved in choirs, worship team, assisting with youth ministry, and eventually co-leading a church-neutral young adults ministry for 8 1/2 years. Alongside young adults, I also had the privilege of leading worship for a church in the Sacramento area for 5 1/2 years.
The Lord ultimately lead me away from Sacramento to a small town called Red Rock, AZ in between Tucson and Casa Grande, where I helped launch a church with some amazing friends. But when I eventually needed a job, I found myself working for an Audio Visual company in Phoenix, AZ. I moved up to Chandler after a year and a half of helping launch Village Church, and found Redemption Gilbert when a co-worker friend of mine invited me to 7Ten, Redemption’s young adults ministry.
Ever since August of 2017, I have been serving at 7Ten on tech team, worship team, as an RC leader, and eventually on staff as a member of the Leadership Development Program, where I am continuing to learn and put into practice, that “all of life is all for Jesus!”
