How I came into relationship with Jesus Christ.
I was reared in a Christian home. While attending a small church in Marion, IN, I kept hearing the minister talk about Jesus and how much He loves us. I wanted to learn more about this Jesus, so I started reading one of the Bibles we had in our home. At age 12, I asked Christ into my heart.
How I came to Liberty Baptist.
Chas and I had been invited to minister in song at Liberty on various occasions and we truly adored visiting Liberty. But we also had our own church home and felt very connected to our pastor and the people there. However, we soon learned that God had other plans in mind for our little family, and in January 1990, we became members of Liberty Baptist.
What I do at Liberty Baptist.
I've recently been hired on as a Ministry Assistant at Liberty Baptist. I'm also involved in various church ministries: I'm an instrumentalist/vocalist/praise team leader in the worship ministry; I'm involved in the Ladies' Ministry, and at various times I've been Lead Point-Coordinator and Decorator for many of Liberty's outreach events. In past years, Chas was youth pastor and leader of our Young Professional's Ministry, and I would come up alongside him as he ministered into the hearts of those whom God placed in our pathway.
Why I do what I do.
Granted, I'm a person of habits and routines, and by my very nature I'm very project-driven and oriented. However, I'm also aware that everything I'm able to do and say, the very breaths I breathe, the heart beating within my chest pumping blood through my veins, the mind I use and the strength and ability I've been given to do what I do....all are gifts from God. Everything I do, everything I am, everything I ever will be....is only because of God and Him alone. I do what I do to glorify my Savior.
