Why God lead me to C3@LBC

This position was an answer to prayer for my wife and me. We had been asking God and considering what might be the next step in my career progression. When this position was first made known to me, I just knew it was where I needed to be. I was really praying that it was where God wanted me to be. I believe that issues and concerns that are addressed during this time in an individual’s life could provide for tremendous growth opportunities as they mature and develop in their faith and career progression.

Why I counsel at LBC?

I love working with college age students. So much happens during those four years in terms of gaining independence, formulating a worldview, and cementing one’s faith. I consider it a privilege to journey alongside these young adults as they learn and grow.

Graduate Assistant

Education

BA, Christian Life/Ministry from Lancaster Bible College
Currently pursuing MEd in School Counseling at Lancaster Bible College

Special Training/ Experience

I have worked in the sports ministry field both locally and internationally (Portugal) counseling athletes. Being able to combine God and sports and leading sports camps has allowed me to meet people that would never step foot in a church for number of reasons.

Why I counsel at LBC?

I counsel at LBC because I feel as an instrument of God I can have an impact on somebody in a positive way. In my life experience, I have seen how God paves the way for His people. I want to use that experience and allow the students at LBC to understand that God indeed has a plan for them as well. Sometimes we need to connect the dots in order to see the final picture. I want to be a connecting dot for the students at LBC.

Education

Why I counsel at LBC?

Working at C3 is truly a blessing to me. The reason I became part of the C3 team is because of my desire to work with students. I believe the college years are a crucial part of a student’s life with different challenges as well as making important decisions that impact their present and future. Also, since LBC now has International Students from over 10 countries and being an International Student myself, I understand the challenges of being in a foreign country. I believe C3 gives me the opportunity to reach out to those International Students of LBC who are in the process of adjusting.
