The unfailing love of Jesus Christ transformed my heart from shame to freedom, from emptiness to a rich full satisfying life. The power and presence of the Holy Spirit continues to teach and equip me to be the person I was designed to be. Part of that was coming on staff in 1992. Since then I have been committed to the process of revealing the love of Jesus Christ and seeing you as a unique powerful person created in His image. Here at KCC you will experience His transforming power, the truth that brings freedom and Christ's love that this family has to offer you.
It is my desire to encourage women to live in and through the power of who they are in Christ. Trials and hardship are common to man, but we can do all things that are God’s will for us, through Christ who strengthens us. I desire to see women walk in the peace, strength and joy of the Lord. Christ came to bring “life,” and we can bring hope and healing to a hurting world. My intent is to work alongside the women of KCC, as they fulfill KCC’s Isaiah 61 mandate.
