Communication Coach & Trainer

I equip Cru staff members and students with communication skills that will amplify their impact for Christ. These skills will enable them to speak in front of groups with confidence, lead musical worship expressively, and connect more effectively with their audience.

Conference Planning & Production

I wear a lot of hats to keep things running smoothly for our communication training events, such as Comm Lab and Emcee Lab. I also run worship lyrics and speaker slides for at least one other conference each year.

Creative Communication

I love honing a message that will be expressed through words and visuals! Check out Rock Your Meeting to see a web-based training project that used my skills in writing, web design, and video editing.

Bible Study Methods Coach

Twice a year a Bible Study Methods class is offered to new Cru staff members. After every large group lecture, the students split up into small study groups to practice the skills they've learned. I recently became a small group coach, and I love it!

With all my heart, I believe that this is God’s heart: to see “a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne” in worship!! (Revelation 7:9, NIV) This is why I am a staff member with Cru. God wants to redeem His creation, and I want to be part of it. For me the best place to do that is Cru.

But I can’t do it alone. Cru has no central funds to pay its missionaries, so my salary and expenses are funded by monthly gifts from people like you. Together we can help fulfill God’s vision to redeem the world. Will you join me?
