I remember looking into my rear view mirror as I drove away thinking “great summer, probably won’t be back…” I had dreams of playing music and traveling the world. At that moment I could not see how much God had changed me and how different my life would be after that summer: the summer of 2001.
Without knowing it, I had awakened to the deepest relationship with Christ I had ever known. I experienced community and unity within the body unlike any other season of my life. Trying to jump back into normal college life after that was like trying to fit a square peg in a round hole. It just did not work. Things were different. I was different. I craved the intimate community God had given me over the past 3 months. Not because it was a cool experience, but because we, together, EXPERIENCED GOD!
Through a strange turn of events God brought me back to Snowbird in May of 2003. My heart leaped and my spirit soared! I was shocked God was moving me back to Snowbird so quickly. I was able to share in music with students as well as oversee the booking responsibilities in those early days.
I have served at Snowbird for over a decade, now. My role has changed a lot over the years. Now that I am married and have small children, I am unable to be as “hands on” involved in the ministry as I once was. However, it is not the recreation that keeps my husband and I here. It is not the food, the lodging or crazy schedule. It’s Jesus. He is at work! He is changing the lives of students, leaders and our staff. He is healing, growing and launching people out of this ministry to share the gospel around the world. Jesus is changing lives and we get to see that a bunch at Snowbird…
I am humbled to be a part of it!
