Serving in United Kingdom on Sponsored Deployment | Eurasia

Using storytelling and media to reach new generations and developing teams and skills to expand the Nazarene voice in the United Kingdom.

A native of the U.S., I was born in Terre Haute, Indiana and grew up in South Bend Indiana. A third generation Nazarene; South Bend First in the NWIN district was my home church growing up. I have always had a passion for storytelling and media and I am using that to find creative new ways to spread the Good News! I briefly studied Multi-media communications at Olivet Nazarene University, with concentrations in T/V video production, film studies, and radio broadcasting before trying my talents as a freelance video editor and production team member at several broadcast stations (WNIT, WSBT). I first got into media missions when I joined a short-term mission to Ukraine and Moldova with fellow Olivet Comm students. There, I learned the power that modern media can have on building the Kingdom, both, as was to bridge the gap to those not yet reached and as a means of supporting those within the church. As I venture through this next step in life, I am eager to see where this path the Lord is leading me down takes me.

Going Where the Church is Not Yet

Today there are over 4.3 billion people who live in areas where there is little to no gospel witness. 4.3 billion people who have not heard the message of the gospel, who have never heard the name of Jesus. We believe that everyone deserves to hear. God continues to call the Church of the Nazarene to spread the message of the gospel, to preach holiness, and to bring good news to the poor all over the world. The task is enormous; far too big for anyone to do alone, but together we can go where the church is not yet and see people, communities, and nations transformed. Reaching these people begins with one step, a step of obedience and faithfulness that says yes to God’s call. Take your first step and start your journey toward serving in missions today.
