Growing up in a Christian home, I have loved Jesus and his church for as long as I remember. I’ve also loved music for as long, taking private lessons since age 5. The world of classical music led me to study Violin Performance and Pedagogy at Wheaton College where the intersection of faith and music came alive to me.
When I started attending Rez during my junior year, I was immediately enthralled by spirit-filled worship, stories of transformation, and true encounters with the living Lord Jesus. I also saw a depth to sacramental theology and liturgy that excited me. I wondered if church wouldn’t be one aspect of life that I engaged on the side, but if my passions could actually come together in service for the life of the church.
I joined Rez staff in 2020 as a Gregory House Resident where I was invited into discernment about vocational ministry and learned how to create meaningful worship experiences for the congregation as a member of the tech team. I was hooked! Now as Production Manager, I help create and implement a vision for worship and arts that invites people into a transforming experience with Jesus during each service. I am still learning how vast the intersection of music and faith is; worship being a primary calling on all our lives as believers. What a beautiful and joyful calling it is!
