Aloha from…Jacksonville Beach, Florida?
Originally from the midwest, I moved to Maui Hawaii in my late teens and lived there for seventeen years—while also frequently living abroad (Asia and Europe) for a few months at a time. I am now living in Jacksonville Beach, FL doing admissions counseling and digital communication for a Christian graduate school while I save to go back to school.
In Maui I served in a discipleship and missions program, mentoring students, serving with them in diverse missions contexts around the world, and teaching worldview and apologetics. Since my teens, RZIM has been a source of formative content for me—truly “Helping the thinker believe, and the believer think.” So a few years ago when I felt prompted to pursue further education and training after years of ministry, I was thrilled to be able to participate in RZIM’s Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics while doing a certificate in Theological Studies at the University of Oxford. The questions I explored in Oxford led me to pursue a Masters in Theological Studies at Regent College in Vancouver—which I recently completed, yay!—focusing on the intersection of theology and philosophy.
I was referred to RZIM Connect by a classmate from OCCA, @KMac …who knows that I share her love for journeying with people who are seeking to deepen their faith and witness—which is exactly what I hope to do in this community.
Looking forward to getting to know you and growing together in the Connect Ohana (family)!
