Which of the Core Values do you focus on and why are you passionate about it?

Build Community: I love to be in community! Spending time with family, friends and community brings me such joy. I firmly believe the Lord has given me the gift to connect with people and bring people together. When I see people gathering, in fellowship, enjoying each other’s company my heart is filled with love. Bringing people out of their shell, asking others to join me in an activity and making connection and friendship is an action in which I cannot stop. My soul craves connection and community and I want that for others!

I love being a part of a team! My co-workers and the leadership are supportive, uplifting, encouraging and passionate about doing God’s work. I also love that I can use my spiritual gifts of administration, hospitality, wisdom and faith.
