Why is C3 special to you?
I’ve been coming to C3 with my Dad since the beginning. I grew up in this church and have loved to watch it grow over the years. Everyone is so kind and always welcoming when you walk in. Since working with C3 Students, my favorite thing is getting to see our kids on Sunday mornings and Tuesday nights, and to be able to watch them grow and move forward in their faith. I just love them all so much!
Name at least two things you do very well.
Photography, staying organized, and alerting everyone in the car when there are cows on the side of the road!
Name at least two things you don't do very well.
I am terrible at being able to walk up to someone new and start a conversation. I’m even worse at being away from my dog for even just 5 minutes!
Tell us about one of the most fun things you've ever done.
For my 24th birthday, I drove all the way to Canada to explore Niagara Falls for the day! It was so fun getting to go behind the falls and explore the city! Then I had to drive the 4 hours back home later that night - which was another adventure in itself!
If you had two hours of absolute free time, what would you do?
I always laugh when people ask me questions like this! If I have a few hours of free time, or a day off of work, I always say I am going to sit on the couch and not move for hours. However, that is almost never the case! I always think of a million things I need to do instead, like cleaning my entire apartment, going grocery shopping, or reorganizing an entire room for no reason. It makes no sense!
Tell us your favorites...
Snack: QUESO! (that counts right?!)
Drink: Anything from Starbucks! And I absolutely love Cream Soda!
Restaurant: El Paso!! Chick- Fil-A
Candy Bar: Sarris milk chocolate
Doubt is natural… Believers need to wrestle with the same questions that skeptics ask. Many believers "inherited" their faith and may have never asked these questions. Both doubters and believers have a moral and intellectual responsibility to examine their doubts and beliefs. C3 is a place that encourages this to happen. Learn more
