I have the privilege of being the Children’s Ministry (KidMin) Director here at Hope. I help lead and shape programming for children birth to Grade 5. I get excited about partnering with parents as we seek to create environments where kids get to know Jesus as their Savior. Nothing gets me more excited than sharing my love of Jesus with kids, parents, and volunteers. I received a Master’s degree in Children’s and Family Ministry from Bethel Seminary, and a degree in Elementary Education from the University of Northwestern. I’m married to Carl and we have three amazing daughters, Greta, Ellie, and Hannah. When I am not at Hope, you can usually find me lifting weights, running with Carl, hanging out with my girls at one of their swim meets, hiking, and reading a book.
