Primary Ministry Focus:

As a member of the Communication Team, serve as a writer, editor, brain-stormer, collaborator and/or overseer of:

  • Internal monthly newsletters and prayer lists for Entrust staff
  • Quarterly online news magazine, Engage, for all Entrust constituents, donors and friends
  • Monthly donor receipt insert page
  • Website content
  • Video concepts, scripts, editing and production
  • Additional modes of raising awareness about Entrust (magazine articles, social media content)
  • Working on becoming a certified facilitator through Entrust’s Women-to-Women Ministry Training (WWMT) in order to invest in next generations of women with key ministry skills


Major Challenges:

  • Organizing and maintaining consistent work days, working from home
  • Balancing Entrust responsibilities with responsibilities at church, with family, in community
  • Keeping up with and understanding technology as it relates to my work


Prayer Focus:

  • That I might use the time of each day well for God’s glory
  • That all our communication pieces be creative, clear, concise, accurate and honoring to the Lord
  • That God will lead our Communication Team on how best to tell Entrust’s story, thus raising awareness, prayer, giving and new people joining our organization

My Story:

Raised in the very building where my father put out a small-town weekly newspaper in North Dakota, I grew up literally breathing in the fumes of newsprint and ink. My father’s a writer, one brother’s a photographer, and another brother and I have both worked in radio. Communication runs in the family. From writing a silly story about the life of a sunflower seed when I was eight, to completing a master’s thesis on how to evangelize the Rastafarians of Jamaica, many words have flowed through my brain and onto paper over the years. Writing and radio are the two forms of communication I love. It’s an honor and a thrill to be allowed to use whatever skills God has given me toward the expansion of His kingdom, to the praise of our Lord Jesus Christ.
