When did you first start coming to Redeemer Fellowship?
From the beginnging!

What is your favorite spot in Newark? (Restaurant/park etc)
I love walking around UD’s campus

Are you a Blue Hen (did you graduate from UD)? Yes/No If not, where did you graduate from?
I am finishing up my undergrad in Sports Health and beginning my Masters of Science in Athletic Training at UD this summer.

What is your comfort food during a global pandemic?
Pizza…yup thats my dinner every night.

How and when did you become a Christian?
I grew up attending church and youth group but it wasn’t until a missions trip to Puerto Rico in high school that God opened my eyes to the need of his saving work on the cross in my life. One night during worship on that trip, I suddenly felt the weight of my sin and its consequences. I then confessed my sins and turned my life over to Christ!

What do you love about being a part of Redeemer?
At Redeemer I’ve come to know and experience what fellowship is. Even during times like these when we’re distant from each other, I never feel alone in my struggles.

What is your favorite childhood memory?
My favorite memories from early on are the ones with my dad: fishing trips, train museums, drag races, volleyball games, and being told to hold on in his muscle cars before he “goes fast” (accelerates quickly).

What is your most practical life tip?
For being someone who doesn’t like change, I like to remember that God is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow. My circumstances change but my God does not.
