I was born and raised in Tampa FL. I became a Christian at the age of 22 after living a worldly life. Since I have become a Christian, God has used me in a variety of different ways. I have served in the mission field in a few different countries, including China, Cuba, South Africa, and Botswana. I have served in the U.S. in the foster care system and in various different ministries in various different churches. I am currently working on by B.A. in biblical studies at Lake Sumter Bible College and Seminary. God has called me to the position of youth and children’s minister at First Baptist Tavares, where I have been serving since June of 2015. It has been an exciting journey so far, and I am always looking forward to what God is going to do next!
