I was born in Tucson, AZ, grew up in several different states in America, as well as 4 years in Brazil. My parents were missionaries and then entrepreneurs, so growing up I was exposed to both vocational ministry and workplace ministry. I love both.
I’ve always loved flying, traveling, speaking in public, and coming up with entrepreneurial ideas to solve problems. I also get very excited about discipleship. I believe the Christian life is lived best when we are being taught and cared for by our elders, as well as caring and teaching for those younger than us.
I got my degree in Business Administration at the University of Arizona, and while studying there, started a private duty caregiving business in 2010. I ran that business until selling it in 2015. In 2013, after graduation from the UofA, I also began working at Agape Hospice in Tucson, AZ. I served there as the Chief Administrative Officer and continue to work with Agape as the Chief Financial Officer, working remotely from Spokane, WA.
In 2018 I was thrilled to be accepted into the Moody Bible Institute School of Missionary Aviation and look forward to completing the 5 year program in the Summer of 2023.
I was born and raised in Tucson, AZ. I received my Bachelors of Christian Ministry at Wayland Baptist University and in the last year have started teaching one of my loves- Zumba! At a young age I felt a calling to engage diverse cultures and overseas missions work which has now finally become God’s timing to pursue with my amazing husband and sweet, boisterous little girl.
I’ve had the opportunity to serve in many different areas of ministry and community outreach, which has only ignited a more intense passion to aid in equipping and coming alongside individuals who are seeking Christ. I also see Zumba and other types of group fitness and dance as a tool to foster camaraderie and a sense of freedom, specifically, for women. I hope to use this tool to build relationships between women in whatever community we are involved in.
Selah Burns burst onto the scene in May, 2017. Arriving a week early and not waiting until we made it to the hospital to pop out, she has rarely lived up to her name. The term Selah is a Hebrew word that means: to pause and reflect. Selah speeds through life at 100 MPH and the more time we spend with her, the more we are convinced that God gave us that name for Selah so that for her whole life she would be reminded to take a few moments here and there to pause and reflect.
Selah has been a true ray of joy both in our lives, as well as in the lives of all those she comes in contact with. We welcome parental advice and wisdom. We cannot wait to see Selah continue to grow and blossom into the beautiful person God has made her to be.
