How did God call you to DCPI?

I have known about DCPI for most of my life. My dad is a DCPI-trained church planter, and I helped my family plant New Song Community Church in Oceanside, CA when I was just three years old.

I have taken two separate DCPI vision trips- one to Kenya and one to Panama-, and each changed my view of the Lord and of the national leaders DCPI works with around the world.

Then, in 2018, Paul Becker and I met to talk about what it would look like for me to join the team and help write books with DCPI. I immediately jumped on board.

What is your personal vision statement, or life scripture?

Life Scripture: 2 Peter 1:4 “His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness.”

What excites you about what God is doing around the world?

The multiplication of churches around the world. It’s so amazing to see how God is working in so many places at the same time to bring His Kingdom!

What miracles have you seen God perform?

Through the power of prayer, I have seen God give offspring to multiple of my infertile friends.
