How did you come to PHCC?
I moved from Minneapolis and was looking for a church similar to what I had at home.  I asked co-workers, neighbors and everyone said there was no such church in Fargo-Moorhead that was cool and had great worship music. I then got a welcome bag delivered to my doorstep from the FM community and it was literature about PHCC not having your traditional organ music. Checked it out and it was exactly what I was looking for!

What do you appreciate about PHCC?
I love that you can come just as you are: broken, hurting, joyful, sick, healthy…doesn’t matter because you are accepted for who you are.

Why do you do what you do?
I love people so it is easy for me to start a conversation with anyone!   I also have the gift of hospitality so leading the refreshment team is something I enjoying doing…it helps that I have an amazing team! Junior/Senior high students are so cool. They are fun to hang with and I learn so much from them on a daily basis. I believe they are not the next generation, they are the now generation. The students today have so many things thrown at them that being lost and hurting is what so many of them are feeling BUT I believe they are the most reachable group and I see God doing amazing things daily in their lives.

Who/what inspires you?
My grandpa.  He always told me to love God and love people, period. He modeled this daily and has played a huge part in the woman I am today.

What are your unique hobbies?
I like to run, read, garden, travel, cook and hang out with friends.
