Campus director

I attended Berry College where I was introduced to the Gospel through Campus Outreach's New Years Conference. I was able to learn about God's grace, having an intentional relationship with the Lord, the importance of community and what it means to be a Christian. From New Years Conference the Lord began to work on my heart leading me to Spring Retreat and Summer Beach Project. I came to Christ June 2, 2017, at Summer Beach Project. The Lord showed me that no person, no substance, no sport can satisfy my needs. He showed me that no family trouble, broken relationships or sin define me, but my identity is in Christ. Through sermons and conferences, the Lord spoke to me saying "Grow where you were planted". This was my motivation to come on staff so that I could grow where I was planted with Campus Outreach and also be able to do life and tell others about the Gospel.
