Church Relations Facilitator


Bethel Church Relations cultivates, strengthens, and supports collaborative partnerships between Bethel University and Christ-centered churches seeking to fulfill the mission of Jesus Christ. 

As the Church Relations Facilitator, I help foster these partnerships by coordinating events that connect students on campus to local churches, that encourage pastors and ministry leaders in their ministry, and that disciple youth from the five-state area with strong biblical teaching at MegaRallies and annual conferences. It is a priviledge to work in an environment where God's impact on people is multiplied as we partner together with Christ-centered churches. 

What Brings Me Joy?

God's merciful grace:

Ephesians 2:4-7 "But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus."

Loving family:

My loving husband and I have 2 teenaged sons who are a blessing from the Lord. We enjoy spending time with each other, our extended family, and our church family.
