Street Ministry Coordinator
September 27th 2005 was my first visit to Church Under The Bridge. I was homeless and living on the streets at the time. Saturday the 26th was my road to Damascus experience and my life changed forever. I had a hunger for God’s Word and the drive to be a servant. I met the man who was to be my mentor Duane Severance at C.U.B. I soon became involved with Mission Possible as a volunteer and that grew through the years.
I developed relationships with the staff members along the way and on May 16th 2014 I was added to the staff. Beau Hamner who was Street Ministry Director at the time was a major player in getting me on staff. He said it was because I Love Jesus! Today I am responsible for Church Under The Bridge coordination and am excited to see the future for Mission Possible in God’s purposes.
