Serving in United States of America
From: United States of America
Who I am:From an early age I valued full time ministry as a vocation. My parents were on Cru staff (formerly Campus Crusade for Christ) for many years, and my father has continued in ministry. In my teenage years, I was much more enamored with visions of rock n' roll stardom. Later, I thought I might teach English and Literature.
In 2002, I found myself a part of a cross-cultural children's ministry team in an unassuming church on the border of Bolivia and Argentina. I thought at the time, "I like doing ministry with and for people that aren't like me. Maybe I could do this as a vocation!" And so my life shifted focus.
Fast forward to 2009. Coming out of a particularly difficult season of ministry with another organization, I had a decisive conversation with Fred Ely, a life long SIMer. Fred asked me to consider becoming a member of the SIM USA recruiting department. After visiting with several SIM missionaries, I made the decision to join SIM.
What I do:Many people who contact SIM are thinking, "I feel called to cross-cultural ministry, but I don't think I'm good enough." I enjoy reminding them that God calls whom he wishes, just as he did with Moses. It is his job to root out sin in our lives and equip us for ministry. As a recruiter for SIM, I find myself making a lot of phone calls and answering a lot of emails. I am reminded that the Lord has me here to counsel and encourage this next generation of missionaries that are being sent out, to help them fulfill their calling and get to the mission "field", the field that is ripe for harvest. SIM's vision to equip the Church, proclaim the Gospel, and meet human need resonates with me.
