“Five Years ago, I came to the Joplin area to go to school and knew that I needed to be involved in a church. I stumbled upon Christ Church and found the spirit work in full progress. I have had the opportunity to help in student ministry here at Christ Church since I arrived. I never thought I would get the opportunity to work with 5th and 6th grade students at CCO, but now that it has come I am so very thankful and blessed. Working with young people has been my passion for a very long time. Letting God show me how and where that would happen has been a long process, but I am confident that God knows exactly what he is doing. At Christ Church I am a student minister who oversees all of the 5th and 6th grade students. I love being a part of this church, not because of how it makes me feel, but because of the Spirit’s moving in this place. This is the body of Christ and the love of God is shown here.”
