Jessica is a recent graduate from Trevecca Nazarene University with a BA in Intercultural Studies. During her time at Trevecca she was given the opportunity to serve in Kyiv, Ukraine for three months. She was able to work with children through clubs, camps, and a VBS program. This trip confirmed for her God’s call on her life to long-term missions working with children. Jessica has been passionate about working with children throughout her life. Growing up in a Nazarene church, Jessica has volunteered in the nursery, helped with VBS, and worked at district children’s camps four years in a row. She has also served on three short term mission trips, one each to Nashville TN, Guatemala City, Guatemala, and Pukalani, HI. During her time in college she taught swim lessons to kids through a program called Swim America.
In February 2021 she travelled to Yerevan, Armenia to serve for one year. She is working with children at kid’s club on Saturdays and helping with VBS. She is also helping with an English club and is hoping to lead a weekly Bible study with English-speaking refugees that attend the church in Yerevan. Jessica is excited to learn from and live in this new culture, and asks for your prayers and support as she prepares for this opportunity.
