T.H. — Worship & Missions Pastor

Interests / Passions: 

The passions that the Lord has given me are missions and worship! I would love to live in another country working in the church (or help plant one), learn the language, immerse myself in the culture and support the ministry in anyway. However, I am open to any place the Lord would have me. I enjoy worship- which I sing, working in youth, and serving in kids. My heart is for unreached people groups and those who don't know the truth, my heart is to see people have the opportunity of the revelation of Jesus, specifically in the MENACA region of the world! I also love languages and teaching!

Needs: 

I would desire full time work and be completely devoted to ministry, however I understand if only part-time hours are available, I will then need to work another job so I can pay off my school debt and weekly expenses. I would need housing help, whether with a pastor, a congregation member, or in a shared apartment.

Experiences: 

I have an AA. in General Studies with a Biblical emphasis. I have worked at various summer camps, babysitting, being a full-time nanny to three kids under the age of 8, one with special needs, working at a daycare for 2 years with ages 6 months to 12 years old. Serving experience in homeless ministries, Feeding America, elderly care, festival set up and clean up, farming help, children outreaches. I have been on 5 missions trips in the past 2 years, to Mexico, New York City, Nicaragua, Los Angeles, and Kenya. Also I plan to get my certificate in Teaching English as a Second Language this summer online, and will be entering a degree completion program to obtain my bachelors in Ministry and Leadership from Life Pacific College this coming fall.

L.D. — Children, Youth & Worship Ministry

Interests/passions:

I would like to a part of children's and middle school - youth ministry, as well as worship ministry. If I had to pick one or the other, worship ministry would definitely be the one that I am more passionate about. If there are any positions that have to do with community outreach/development, missions work, intercultural ministry, and discipleship, I would absolutely love to get more experience in these areas! Thinking long term, I would like to be involved in international mission work in the medical field, as I am studying to be a nurse. I know that God has called me to love the less fortunate by facilitating healing not only physically and mentally, but also emotionally and spiritually. The Lord has really given me a heart for East African cultures, so I would love to gain ministry experience in that area, but I am not limiting myself to learning and loving ALL people of any culture!

Needs:

I would like a stipend and housing commitment so I can be better invest in my areas of ministry. However, I plan on still getting a job to support myself and be involved in the community I live in. If given a pastoral position, I would love to get my licensure through Foursquare as I feel that it would be useful to have with my long term plans. If I would be the leader of a ministry (e.g. youth ministry), I would like to have a committed ministry budget so I would not have to pay for everything out of pocket, but can still invest in my ministry. 

Experiences:

I received my AA in General Studies with a Biblical emphasis through LPC—Ignite and am currently working on a Bachelor's of Science - Nursing from Radford University. Currently, I am serving at Ignite as the Worship Intern as we as a Resident Advisor for students. I have experience in children's ministry, nursery, and youth ministry both through my home church and through Ignite, in local churches as well as abroad on mission trips. I also had the privilege to co-lead the planning and implementation of the "tweens" program for the 2015 Foursquare Convention. I think my experiences and my passions would be an asset to a church/ministry as I enjoy organizing and administrating, and have such a big heart for the health of the church. In any area of ministry I serve in, I know I would give everything I can to maintain or better the health of a ministry/church and that the Lord would teach me something valuable in the process.
