I was born in Akron and I’ve lived in Stow my entire┬álife. I attended churches all around Northeast Ohio until my family found Redemption Chapel in 2014. Since then, I’ve been attending our youth ministry as a student and volunteer. Through my pastors and leaders in youth ministry, I grew in my faith and in 2018, I decided I wanted to be baptized here at Redemption Chapel. During my four years in our high school ministry, I discovered a love for serving and felt called to serve in our tech booth. I’m now attending the University of Akron majoring in communications. I enjoy photography, video games, ultimate frisbee,
and playing guitar. I’m excited for my future here at Redemption and to see how God can use me.
