How did God call you to DCPI?
I was invited to apply by Chris McKinney and found myself in a place for a purpose for this year. I wanted something more than an average 9-5 job where I just clocked in and out for the day. I wanted to work somewhere that was actively pursuing God’s Kingdom.
What is your personal vision statement or life scripture?
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
What excites you most about what God is doing through DCPI around the world?
Just how far they are reaching with the curriculum they have for leaders and how effective it has been. It’s insane how small it started, yet God has been able to use it for His benefit. Even if I do not get to see the seeds sown through DCPI in my lifetime, I know God is moving through it.
What miracles have you seen God perform?
The turning of a cold atheist heart to someone who is so in love with Jesus and has not stopped. Even close family members/friends being healed when healing seemed dim.
What have been the most influential books in your life?
The Bible- Of Course
“I Declare War” by Levi Lusko
“Not a Fan” by Kyle Idleman
“Confronting Christianity” by Rebecca McLaughlin
