In 10 words or less, tell us how you serve at Hulen Street.
I serve in the Student Ministry as the Student Connections Intern.

How long have you been with Hulen Street?
I've called Hulen Street home and family for a year and a half.

What's the best part about serving?
Getting a front row seat in seeing how Jesus transforms the lives of students and their families. It's crazy to see how I play a small role in His story in their lives.

What is the biggest challenge you face in serving?
Constantly remembering that it is not I who saves or heals these students, but it is Jesus who saved and heals them. This has definitely been such a humbling and refining process for me.

How did you get started serving?
I had many conversations with Grant Finch before I visited letting me him know that my heart was for Student Ministry. And progressively I became rooted into Student Ministry at Hulen Street.

What is something the Spirit is teaching you lately?
The most important thing I can do for Student Ministry or any ministry in the future is to relentlessly keep my eyes on Jesus and be like Jesus. If not, I am nothing more than a motivational speaker.
