I’m a 1st year missionary from Martinsville, IN.
What brought you to Christ in the City?
A desire to love others deeply and seek Christ out in the poor and my community. I initially heard about Christ in the City during the SEEK 2023 conference. The Holy Spirit gave me the courage to take a leap of faith and apply to the three-week summer of service in Dayton, OH. Not only did I gain friends in the homeless shelter, but I had never felt more loved, seen, and known in those three weeks by my community and shelter friends than I had in my entire life. I fell in love with the desire to surrender all that I am to Christ, to allow myself to be fully His. Christ in the City gives me the opportunity to truly surrender my life into His hands, and to love Him deeper and more fully.
What are you looking forward to?
I can’t wait to see where Christ is leading me!!! I believe my Year of Service will open my heart to love deeper and truly discover how I can invite Christ more fully into my heart. I’m also excited to see how my community will help me deepen my faith!
A bit about me
