Hello! My name is E.J. and I love youth ministry! I grew up in Mankato, MN with my parents and younger sister, Katelyn. My parents and sister now live in Minneapolis. I met my husband, Matthew, in college when we were both on the Navigators (campus ministry) leadership team. December 18th will be our 5-year anniversary. We have three boys, Teddy (3), Beau (1.5), and Freddie (newborn)! We love anything outdoors and we especially love baseball. More than anything, we love Jesus and aim to become more like Him every day. What I love about youth ministry is developing strong relationships with kids. I enjoy doing this by supporting them at their activities (Go, Orioles!), grabbing a bite to eat or chatting about life over a Caribou Campfire Mocha, going on mission trips/retreats/to camps, Bible studies, movie nights, laser tag, nerf gun wars and anything messy! If you or your youth is looking for a place to connect, please do not hesitate to reach out to me.
