Hey Friends!
Hoping your February has been going great and you have stayed far from the flu! This year is already moving too fast, am I right?. January was full of exciting things, hope you are blessed to get to read about some of the neat things that are going on in our neck of the woods.


I kicked off the year by heading to staff retreat in Burnet. We have a retreat before the start of each semester and they are such a blessing to my personal ministry. Staff retreat is a time where we reflect  on our relationship with God, relate to one another (this is the most time I get with the staff from other campuses), and we get to share about our ups and downs from the Fall semester. It’s always a rejuvenating experience for me.


This past month we also headed to Winter Camp, this our biggest event of the year! We had around 20 students from Richland that got to experience camp for the first time. It’s been a month and they are still talking about the experience and I know this will be such a special memory for the years to come. This camp we had our friends  from Western Washington University come and share with our students about our “Send Me” theme. The weekend consisted of sermons that challenge some of the obstacles that get in the way of reaching out to our campuses but also encouraged all of us to be people on mission! Our students were so blessed to have Geoff and Jessica Mumley come speak at our camp, there are too many good things to share about the sermons but I encourage you to go listen to them here.


Core at Richland College has been so encouraging after Winter Camp. Our students really caught a vision for their campus and have been outreaching to their at school. It has been super special getting to see that the students that just joined in the Fall are already getting the vision and sharing Jesus with others!

As the semester continues please pray that the students don’t lose their groove and excitement about being people who are sent. Pray that the Spirit will continue moving through them and our campuses!


Thank You for all your support and encouragements! As always let me know how I can be praying for you.

Enjoy the pictures below!

Your campus minister,

Hey friends! 

I apologize for being MIA last month. The busiest time of the school year for ministry is now over and now I get the chance to update you on all of the cool things that are going on at Richland. Be prepared for lots of pictures!

Our Cores

Cores are our ministries small groups that meet throughout the week on the Richland campus. In core we study the Bible, build deep relationships, and invite students from our campus to come join us. This year I get to lead with one of my favorite girls Kobloh-Obase or KB for short. :) This is KB’s first year leading in any sort of ministry role but you wouldn’t even know if you saw her lead, she is such a natural! KB is so good at reaching out to people, making them feel loved, and she is just so fun. I love getting to co-lead core with her. We are a few weeks into core and it’s so exciting getting to see friendships being formed. The girls come each week ready to talk about Jesus and share their lives with another. We usually tend to star…
Hey team!I can’t believe the school year is officially over. What a year! This past week has been full of end of the year festivities, encouragements, and even some tears. As I reflect back on the past school year, God has been so sweet to me and our ministries. This year has been one of tremendous growth for our staff, our leader team, and our student body.
I asked three Richland ladies the following “How has God been faithful to you this school year?” I was so encouraged by their responses that I wanted to share them with you! Side note: They were so excited to be featured in this months ministry blog.This is Reni! I get to meet with Reni weekly to study the Bible. She is a deep-thinker, honest, and has such a hunger to get to know more of Jesus. She is also an amazing singer!
“God has been so faithful to me this school year. He has always been with me but starting college I never felt more blessed in my relationships with my professors and companions and even my school work. God has…
Hey friends! I can't believe we are only a few days away from the first day of school! This summer has been great and all but I am definitely SO ready to be back on campus a lot more and I’m especially excited to meet new students. We still have so much to do as a team before classes begin. In the next few days we will be nailing down our student leader team for both Richland and TWU Dallas. We have so many great students that we are considering for leadership this year and being a corefa is a big commitment, pray for the staff as we have these final conversations but also for the students as they consider whether to lead for the school year or not. 
GO THUNDERDUCKS! The first week of school at Richland College we are on campus five days away for long hours meeting students, playing games, telling them about our ministry, setting up time with those students throughout the week and it can be a long and exhausting week. Every year is the same and every year I forget to spend time pra…
