In your own words describe what you do here at Harvest.
I partner with Pastor Scott and Kyle in planning the worship experience for Sunday services. This includes planning song choice, assembling the worship team, sound team, and media team, and leading on most Sunday mornings.
Why did you want to be on staff at Harvest?
I love worshipping alongside a room full of people who want to lift His name in praise! With that being said, I was drawn in by the intentionality of three things here at Harvest: in vertical worship, in biblical preaching, and in community in building Christ's church through discipleship.
What experience, education, and/or work background do you bring with you to Harvest?
I have my BA in Bible and Theology from William Jessup University and have had a love for the church and ministry since I was very young. With my dad and older sister being worship leaders growing up, I was exposed to worship leadership from early on and it only continues to grow and flourish!
What are you most passionate about when it comes to ministry?
First and foremost, the salvation of God's people! There is great power in the name of Jesus, so bringing glory to his name through worship brings people to a place of repentance, healing, maturity, and humility. There's no place like being in His presence.
What could we find you doing on your days off?
Probably hanging out with my husband Dan! We enjoy good food, movies/Netflix (yes, I'm still watching), hiking with our pup Tucker, and spending time with family and friends.
What's one thing someone would be surprised to know about you?
I had the INCREDIBLE opportunity to be a part of a traveling Christian rock/worship band for about 5 years!
If you could travel anywhere in the world where would you want to go and why?
Barcelona, Spain... My best friend is a missionary there; I'd love to see all she's been doing for the cause of Christ!
What music/musicians have been influential in your life?
I was exposed to Hillsong for the majority of my worship experience. Their passion for writing and producing songs that lift the name of Jesus while bringing the whole world in to share in glorifying Christ always inspired me! I have also been inspired by Kari Jobe since middle school; her transparent heart for the Lord made an impression on me as a young worship leader.
