Serving at the Greek Bible College
At a young age I would be drawn in with curiosity to learn more about other cultures and religions from the missionaries and international students that my grandparents hosted. It was that curiosity that took me to the Netherlands to study abroad. While there, I became part of a university ministry and I met students from around the world who were clearly walking with God and living with a purpose, sharing Christ with those around them and making a difference in the world. I could see God using university students to reach those who don’t know Him. I knew that at that moment that I wanted to be to other students what that ministry was to me… to pour into and mobilize university students.In September 2012 I attended the Greek Bible College, which is located just outside of Athens, Greece. As an international student at the college, I was able to learn more about the Bible, my faith, and got a foundation for being a missionary. My vision is to mobilize Kingdom-minded university students to multiply and build the body of Christ in Greece and throughout the world.
Where I Work
I will be serving at the Greek Bible College specifically working with their International Student Program (ISP). Having been an international student myself and having worked with international students for four years now in the U.S., I know what it is like to be living/studying in a country that is not your own. I want to help the ISP students solidify their calling, equip and mobilize them to do what God is calling them to do.
