I am told my years of experience and youthful energy are my greatest assets, giving me the ability to speak to groups of youth, young adults, adults, women’s groups, parents or family ministries, at churches for worship, prayer, or special services, at retreats or conferences.
I have had various experiences speaking, preaching and leading. For example, as a youth pastor, I led an area youth leader training event called “Ignite” from 2006-2011. The training event gathered 65-185 (growing over the years) area youth leaders and student leaders together for a day of worship, training, and networking. Utilizing local youth pastors to lead and teach, but also securing national speakers for our one-day events.
Other speaking engagements include:
“Friday Night Fire” a youth and young adult worship & prayer night 2017
“Renew” youth Conference 2019
Various Youth Retreats
Jericho Road Project – local mission project
Beyond youth ministry, I also preached regularly to the larger congregation at my church as well as other area churches. In addition to preaching the Sunday morning service at several Women’s retreats, I was the keynote speaker at White Clay Creek Presbyterian Church’s women’s retreat in 2017.
Passionate about helping people hear the voice of God through the word, prayer, and personal experiences, I tend to be a hands on preacher who loves to take the time with people before or after a service to answer questions or pray with them. It is an honor for me to be given an opportunity to share the love of God, the saving grace of Jesus, and the transforming power of the Holy Spirit, through speaking or preaching at any event. I consider each event a unique opportunity and I always begin by taking it to the lord in prayer, seeking to discern the word the Holy Spirit desires to speak to your specific group and then trust the Holy Spirit to show up and bring the increase!
I will work with any group to design the perfect weekend retreat or message for church, but some of the topics I am passionate about:
My absolute favorite Bible story… if you know me, you are already saying out loud, THE WOMAN AT THE WELL! As many times as I have used this Scripture I have never preached the same message from it – God’s word is always fresh!
I also love to preach/teach on:
Learning to hear the voice of God for yourself
Realizing the fullness of who you were created to be
Renouncing the lies of the enemy and receiving the truth of God
Spiritual activities that help you draw closer to God: Solitude, silence, Lectio Divina, prayer, fasting
God’s plan for Women in leadership and ministry
Healing and forgiveness
Healing from trauma
Finding your worth and affirmation in Christ alone
Whatever is on your heart, God can make it happen!
