Since beginning my new journey at Open Door Mission eight months ago, I have seen God at work in so many lives. Every day I am growing in my walk with God, and I am blessed to be a part of the Open Door Mission team.
I first started in the Volunteer Department, a ministry that grew on me as I worked with volunteers and guests alike. As a Volunteer Coordinator, I had many opportunities to share the love of Christ and be a support for both the staff and guests at the Garland Thompson Men’s Center. I love getting involved with the different activities such as leading a morning devotion time for the men and hearing their awesome testimonies of life change!
I have recently moved to a new position as Office Manager in the Development Department, and I am excited to see the ways that I can make a difference in this position. I am reminded of a saying that my mom used to have, “In Christ’s love, EVERYONE is SOMEONE!”
