How I came into a relationship with Jesus Christ
On March 28, 1973, I was sitting in Children’s Church in the basement of Mt. Prospect Bible Church when I heard the Holy Spirit call my name and open my eyes to my sin. I left the room with other children and sat on the back stairs, bowed my head, told God I was sorry and trusted Jesus for the forgiveness of my sin. In my early thirties, the Holy Spirit revealed to me that I knew a lot about others said the Bible said about Jesus, but I didn’t know it for myself. This experience was the beginning of an insatiable appetite for knowing God.
How I came to Harvest
Friends called my house for a year, every weekend, asking us to attend Harvest. We were burnt out on church and church experience. But they persisted. I never wanted to attend, but finally, after a year, my former husband insisted that I get dressed because we were going to Harvest. That was April of 1994. I started attending because of the clear teaching of God’s Word. I stayed because of the beautiful people.
What I do at Harvest
I am honored and humbled to serve the people of our church and community as the Senior Director of Campus Life and Harvest Kids.
Why I do what I do
I serve at Harvest Bible Chapel because God has asked me to do so and I love Him with my whole heart. I am honored to serve the Lord at this church and one day, when I stand before Him, I will not say “what you asked of me was too hard.” I am determined to do what the Lord asks of me, without complaining, through His power, with all my might, finding beauty and love in every season.
