My name’s Allison and I’m a 1st-year Christ in the City missionary from Spearfish, SD.

What brought me to Christ in the City

After starting college I attended both Seek and SLS conferences where I met and spoke with the Christ in the City missionaries. During those conversations I began to feel convicted to serve, but I didn’t really see it lining up while in school. However, over this summer I was on a formative mission at FOCUS Summer Projects, and found myself longing for a greater opportunity to serve in the coming year. We took a day trip to see CIC and through prayer I felt that this was indeed the year and capacity that God was calling me to serve.

What I’m looking forward to

I am really looking forward to growing in community, after being at Summer Projects and being surrounded by Christ-filled friends, my desire for that kind of relationship with both men and women was ever-more present. I am also excited to see how God stretches my heart and grows my understanding for the friends we serve.

A bit about me

I am a fun-loving, lighthearted and easy-going person, I have learned to love others where they are at by serving as a Young Life and LifeTeen leader. I strive to bring the light of Christ into others lives. I also have a great desire to live out the characteristics and mission that God gave me, to hopefully one day join the Saints that have gone before me.
