    About me

    I am married to Jesse and we live in the eastern suburbs of Sydney. We love family and friends, movies, the beach and the snow. I come from a wonderful, loving family and nothing makes me more excited than filling our home with friends and family for a meal. I have been a Christian for about ten years, but really only understood what that means over the past five. For the past six years I have owned my own Dance and Fitness studio. But I found God's call on my life becoming louder and louder. In 2016 I started studying theology at SMBC, but found myself craving a more practical, hands on approach to ministry. And so came the idea of MTS... one of the best decisions I have ever made. Praise God for pursuing me every step of the way!

    About my Apprenticeship

    I'm delighted (and privileged) to be doing MTS at Grace City Church in Sydney. What does MTS involve? I will spend two years growing under God's Word in formal training. I will get to think deeply about why we, as Christians, sit under the authority of God's Word and let it impact our lives. What does MTS look like practically? Well I work in the church office Monday - Thursday and study on Fridays. I am working with a great team of people who are excited to train and encourage me. My role particularly involves caring for new members of our church and seeing how we can best love, serve and grow them as disciples of Jesus.

    Prayer Points

    Please pray for my continued endurance, strength and RELIANCE ON GOD. Starting MTS has brought about many changes in my life. I am so excited, but also incredibly aware that I need to rely on God. Might your prayers help me do that. Please pray for my HUSBAND - Jesse - who has been so encouraging and supportive of my ministry training. Help me to love him well in this busy time. Please pray for my FAMILY who do not yet know Jesus. Pray for opportunities to have good conversations. Pray that they might see His love, grace and peace shining through me and the work I am doing. Please pray for GRACE CITY CHURCH - that it might be a place deeply committed to the gospel. Pray for the leaders here that they will remain humble and faithful servants. Please pray for my SUPPORTERS - give thanks for them! And pray that they will be burdened with a desire to support me prayerfully and financially across 2017-18. Thank you for praying! As my prior minister used to say... No prayer, no power. Little prayer, little power. MUCH PRAYER, MUCH POWER!
