Otago-Southland Youth Consultant
I grew up in a Christian family and was very familiar with going to church; however it was during my high school years that I began to own my faith for myself. During these years Camp Columba played a significant part in helping me understand what it means to follow Christ. Knowing the impact Christian camping has had on my faith builds my excitement about my involvement with SU camps. Through my experience I believe a lot of what we do is about creating spaces for God to move in people’s lives and God shows up in incredible ways.
After I finished year 13, I accepted the offer to have a ‘gap’ year and lead the youth ministry at the Riversdale Waikaia Presbyterian Parish. This is where I completed the Presbyterian Youth Ministry internship –graduating from Laidlaw College with a Bachelor of Ministry. During this time God confirmed to me that youth ministry was what he was calling me to do long term. Needless to say young people have captured my heart!
My role is to support and mentor youth workers in Otago and Southland. Do get in touch with me!
