"I'm excited about what God is doing in our student ministries at Morningside.  It is my desire to see our students develop a genuine relationship with Christ, learn what being a Christ follower means, and then provide opportunities for them to use their gifts to reach their families, friends, community, and world.  My favorite verse is Galatians 2:20 'I have been crucified with Christ, and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me.  The life I now live in the flesh, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.'   That was my grandmother's favorite verse, and it reminds me that all I do is made possible only through faith in Christ.  You can find out more about our youth and children's ministry at
