Leading Effective Team Meetings: Whether you lead a staff team, a group of regular volunteers, or even just your occasional event this session will help you plan for and effectively lead a meeting with purpose, engagement, and hopefully even a little fun.
Discovering Your Gifts: Ever wondered what God’s asking you to do to serve His kingdom? Ever felt a little out of place in a volunteer or leadership position? These are reasonable questions and the great news is that God has given you natural gifts and abilities called spiritual gifts. Join us for this session as we talk about ways to discover and most effectively use the gifts God has given you.
In 2002, I made my first trip to New York City (NYC) on a collegiate missions trip. God gripped my heart tremendously that first trip, and my life was forever changed. Through college and seminary my interest in reaching the lost through church planting was piqued. Fast forward 10 years from that first trip, and God clearly put these two loves together and called me to be part of planting churches. In 2013, I made the move to the Big Apple to play a small part in God’s story of redemption for a place of global impact unlike any other. During the past few years God has blessed this calling and used me in ways I never imagined.
I'm originally from Tennessee and have a fantastically supportive family and community back home. I love sports, traveling and seeing others reach the potential God has for them.
NYC has been called the city with the “largest global impact and influence in the world.” As we reach NYC for Christ, we have the potential to reach areas of the world. We have the opportunity to share the gospel with individuals and families we will never meet. The world has come to NYC; let's continue to bring NYC the gospel! God is at work planting new churches to spread the hope and peace of the gospel in NYC.
I serve as a church planting team member with Bridge Community Church (BCC) in Long Island City, Queens. BCC is a new church plant sharing grace and peace as we build relationships in our community. I also serve as a missionary mobilizer for the Send NYC team, and I help connect missionaries to church plants. I love to see God lead Christ followers to follow His will for their lives.
