My first interaction with BSHOP was through Immersion. During Immersion, missions became a mindset for me rather than an overseas location. Because I knew through personal experience how effective the ministry was with teaching young people about developing a relationship with God and following His mission for the world, I was excited to join the team as an administrative assistant in October 2017.
I love supporting the ministry of BSHOP as we seek to find what God is doing on the Westside and then join Him in His mission. In addition to working at Bridge Street, I enjoy reading, working at a Safe House, biking, hiking, camping, sports, and collecting elephants. My husband, Daniel, and I plan to support ministries and gain more experience working in Grand Rapids for a couple years before joining Wycliffe Bible Translators and supporting their mission overseas.
