Worship Assistant

E-Mail:

It is my privilege to serve alongside this church through the ministry of music and with college students. I have been attending Rimrock since 2018 and one of the first things that caught my attention was the genuine love for Christ and others that is openly on display among the people here. My heart and passion is for others to know their identity in Christ and the way HE has designed us to live life. Outside of Rimrock I have been working with college students since 2014, discipling students in what it means to follow Christ. I love meeting new people and sharing life together and I am so thankful to be here!
