Where I’ve Been:
To talk about where I’ve been over the last year would take a long time. But here are some things. In the spring of last year I realized that my identity was not in the things that I did, but in who I was in Christ. That has freed up ministry a ton, as I see it now just as an overflow of the grace that Christ has shown me. This last summer I was back at Camp Ridgecrest for Boys. Talk about God’s faithfulness. I got to see how God had used me last summer to impact those kids, and got to see them this summer again. It was probably the coolest part of my summer and hopefully sometime I will not be so busy that I can write it down. But that was awesome. And now I’m in my Senior Year!
Where I am:
Well, I’ve finally made it to my senior year of college. Finally! It has been five and a half years but the Lord has been so good and faithful over these last three years at North Greenville University. This semester I am the youth intern at Taylors First Baptist. It has been a great time of ministry and learning. I have been continually humbled, learning that ministry is not always spent doing “ministry.” What I mean by that is that a lot of times my internship is spent putting up chairs, running a power point, etc. I’ve realized that even janitors and different behind the scenes staff are just as vital to the body of Christ as the people in the front are.
I have a lot of questions to be answered before January.
I don’t even really know full on what ministry looks like up there yet. I know I will be working with small groups, with my church plant intern boss, Aubrey. And I know I will be doing evangelism in the city and starting groups of my

So if you could please be praying for me. Pray for perseverance for me to make it to graduation. Pray for the unanswered questions in Asheville to be answered. Pray for me not to worry about anything but with prayer and petition may I make my requests know to God (Philippians 4:6). Pray that I would be present here, at North Greenville, at Taylors, in Greenville, until my departure. Pray that I would trust God fully and fix my eyes on Him always.
