WHO I AM

Jesus-Follower. Daughter. Facilities & Events Director. Loyalist. Native Floridian. First-Generation Graduate. Industrial Engineer.

WHAT I'M DOING

In February 2018, God called me to serve His kingdom with the Underground Network, a global community of missionaries and microchurches. Our passion is for the poor and the lost. We empower communities to reach and serve the people who exist at the margins of the church as we know it. We are also a 501c-3 a non-profit organization that supports missionaries with a variety of professional and spiritual services.

I am currently serving as the Facilities & Events Director managing the multi-purpose facilities, coordinating the operations for our network’s Sunday services, planning special events, and providing meeting spaces to empower leaders in their own specific missions. Providing these services and more for our different microchurches helps them be more effective and frees them to be able to invest their resources wisely into their ministries and not have to worry about spending more time and money on basic space needs.

When I’m not working, I also co-lead a microchurch called Searching with my roommates for women in the pursuit of loving Jesus and the poor and marginalized in our lives. We gather in our home with neighbors and friends to share the love of Jesus and support one another in prayer. I also serve with Created, a ministry committed to serving vulnerable women caught up in the sex industry. As a part of this, I go with teams into strip clubs and brothels monthly to befriend and pray for women within these dark places along with weekly dinners with women in their recovery program.

 I'm giving my life to serve Jesus, His people, and the lost around me. I will continue to give my heart and soul to see His kingdom come here on earth and ask that you would support me.

BECOME A PARTNER

If you feel that God is calling you to join me and the Underground in our mission to reach the lost, there are several ways you can help:

Pray. I will always need a support system of partners who are devoted to raising up our community, our work, and myself in prayer. Without God's help and guidance, our mission is lost and our work is pointless.

Rent. Host your next event at the Underground. To learn more on how to rent space, visit: www.hubvenue.com

Give. My annual fundraising goal is $35,000, which goes towards salaries, supplies, and expenses for the events & facilities department. Consider giving a one time gift or recurring gift by clicking the buttons below. If you'd like to send a check, make it payable to “Underground Network” with '1851' in the memo line to:

I cannot thank you enough for your love and support.
