As Chief Operations Officer and a short-term mission coach, it is my privilege to provide organizational leadership to DELTA and to serve churches through short-term mission trip preparation and training. The Lord called me to this role through a love for the church and seeing His Body love Him and love others through action as well as words. My first mission trip was my freshman in college in 1998 when I went to Ensenada, Mexico over Thanksgiving weekend. To this day, I still cannot say what made me decide to go, but it certainly changed me forever.
I have served with short-term mission teams in Mexico, Honduras, El Salvador, Ecuador, Haiti, Zimbabwe, and Italy. However, the highlight of my mission involvement was having the opportunity to live in Ensenada with a pastor for a summer. I learned more about God, myself, and being a Christian in a country other than the United States during that one summer than all of my years combined! I thank God for all He has brought me through and I take joy in using my experiences and what God has taught me as a way of discipling missionaries in their journey towards Christ-likeness.
