In 10 words or less, tell us how you serve at Hulen Street.
I am a Discovery Center Team Leader.

How long have you been with Hulen Street?
We found Hulen Street via an internet search in the fall of 2011. I thought the big tent was a little strange when I first drove up but we fell in love with the church. We became Covenant Partners in February 2012.

What's the best part about serving?
I've found that when you give of your time and service to the church, you get an immense return on your investment in the form of joy. To be able to participate in a small part of God's work is quite rewarding.

What is the biggest challenge you face in serving?
Serving isn't always convenient. There are times we have to rearrange our schedule to ensure we meet the needs that our role requires. And serving definitely can push me beyond my comfort zone at times.

How did you get started serving?
At our Partnership Workshop, a need was identified for help in the Discovery Center and we were able to get plugged in right away.

What is something the Spirit is teaching you lately?
To trust Him without wavering and without worrying about the future.
