My Story

I accepted Christ at a very young age, so young that I can’t recall a time of my life that Christ wasn’t a part of it. When I was in high school, I felt God leading me in new ways and a maturing of my faith as I was challenged and began to take ownership of the faith I had professed. It was then the Lord started healing the broken places in my heart, some I didn’t even know about. He began teaching me of His love and compassion and placing a burden in my heart for those around me to know his same love and compassion that has been transforming my life.

During my time in collage for my undergraduate and masters in Art History, God placed a passion on my heart for missions. After working in Marketing my dream was to use my education and profession to go and be a missionary elsewhere, He had a different plan in mind… Calling me back to my hometown he asked me to be on-mission where I’d grown up, Grace Church. One of the hardest and best seasons of my life, I have been amazed watching God use my education and work experience in the arts and marketing here at Grace and I feel so blessed to have been called to this church body.

My Hope for Grace

My hope for Grace is that we as a body of believers would grow in boldness in declaring the freedom found in Christ throughout our region and New England and that we would show His love and compassion to those around us.
