What Would Jesus Drive: Whatever He wants because He’s gonna take the wheel.
Favorite Bible Verse: “Strengthen me with raisins, refresh me with apples, for I am faint with Love.” Songs 2:5 or Romans 5:3-5, “Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.”
Why Campus Ministry: I once dreamed of being a professional hand model, modeling everything from gloves to watches, but an ill-fated accident with an extremely hot half-caff, soy, caramel macchiato ended those dreams. Now I get to walk alongside college students as they seek God’s will for their lives and that’s pretty cool too.
