I am passionate about the calling God placed on my heart to foster a safe welcoming environment where believers from all walks of life can come together and have their lives transformed by the word of God. I believe God has purposed every life to give Him glory, regardless of our limitations, abilities, and background. We are all important to God and together we make up His church.
Being a special needs parent, I have come to realize that the church has a role to play in changing the narrative on diversity and disability in society. My mission is to promote inclusion, acceptance, equality, and unity of purpose in Christ.
Romans 12:2 “Do not conform to the pattern of this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will”.

Psalm 100 1-5
“Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth. Worship the LORD with gladness; come before him with joyful songs. Know that the LORD is God. It is He who made us, and we are His; we are His people, the sheep of His pasture. Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise; give thanks to Him and praise His name. For the LORD is good and His love endures forever; His faithfulness continues through all generations”.
Worship is at the center of my heart. I love how worship takes us to another dimension (that secret place) where everything about us is lost and we find the presence of the Lord. I honestly feel that there is no greater purpose in the life of a believer than to worship and glorify our Maker. Sundays give us a wonderful opportunity to get together and worship the Lord with one voice and one heart. My heart’s desire is for people to draw nearer to God, as we praise and worship in spirit and in truth.
I primarily play keyboards and guitar. I met Jesus in college at age 19. Over the years I have helped lead worship at church sang in a traveling youth choir and played in a couple of rock bands.
My greatest joy is to worship God in the Spirit and with all kinds of music. I desire to reach people for Jesus and help them grow spiritually in God’s loving family. I love red M + Ms.
I grew up going to Dunlap with my family when I was younger, but didn’t take my faith seriously until I made a decision to follow Christ in college. I came back to Dunlap as I felt called to serve here and further God’s kingdom in the Renton community. At Dunlap, I help lead worship playing drums, and I help give updates on the missionaries we are supporting as a church. I am thankful for the church communities I have been apart of and how they’ve shaped my life and given me close friendships.
I enjoy spending time in fellowship with friends, whether it’s sharing a meal, going on an adventure, or playing disc golf!
