Tell us a story of what you’ve seen God do through your ministry
In the 2 years that I have been in this ministry I have seen God do some amazing things. One that sticks out to me was during our back to school drive. I had a school secretary tell me that the donation of the backpacks filled with school supplies made a huge impact to a single mom of two children. The mom came into the front office looking for help with purchasing school supplies for her children and the secretary was able to hand her one of the backpacks we had recently dropped off. The mom was filled with so much gratitude and she couldn’t believe that her need was met immediately. She didn’t know where she was going to find the funds to purchase the items for her children and was so relieved that her children would be able to start school with everything that they needed. That is just one of the many stories of the way the church’s generosity is impacting the community we are investing in.

Tell us a story of what you’ve seen God do through your ministry:

Now they are leaders helping to build up new volunteers. Using the task they serve as a gateway to understanding how much God loves them.

Describe your job
I love what I do because my job is to go out and find the stories of how God is moving in and through our church and tell those stories through film. My greatest hope is that people’s faith is made stronger through the films that I make, that people are inspired to a deeper life with Jesus, and that people can’t help but share what they see with others. And I absolutely love getting to do this with an incredible team of volunteers.
Tell us a story of what you’ve seen God do through your ministry
My second Easter leading the video team I’ll never forget my lead camera operator tapping me on the shoulder and asking me to take over his camera for a little while. I just figured he needed to go to the bathroom or something. He handed me the camera and walked down to the front of the amphitheater to receive prayer. This was just one of those moments when I was suddenly reminded that its not just about what we capture with our cameras but its also about us participating in the ministry taking place as well. This is a story I still share with my teams every time we go out to shoot.

Worship Pastor

Describe your job
I get to help lead our congregation into God’s presence through music and worshipful expression!
Beach or mountains?
This is a hard one for me. I have come to enjoy the beach more in the last two years, because the water on the East Coast is so much warmer! But I think I would still choose the mountains over the beach. Especially if there’s a lake nearby!

Under the Tuscan Sun – Besides the fact that it is Italy (and even though it does not follow the book).  I identify with the character, shattered by life, feeling hopeless and wondering if she would ever be happy again.

Describe your job

One thing people don’t realize about the staff that they need to know?
This staff knows how to work hard, is beyond talented, and loves to have fun together. It is pretty beautiful to see this team working together toward a common goal or getting outside of RH to play. They do both incredibly well and in ways that continue to surprise me.
Tell us a story of what you’ve seen God do through your ministry
God continues to build our faith. We have walked through a lot of life over the years and I have seen God grow staff into leaders, servants, and devoted followers time and time again. I have seen more than once, a passionate volunteer become a pastor and a leader. I have seen people get invited into a storyline bigger than themselves, and I have seen lives changed time and time again because Jesus became real to them.
