These are the ministries I have a heart for and have spent a lot of my life pouring into!

This is the church I grew up in. The way that they choose to intentionally delve into people where they are and the abundance of ways they reach into the Lansing area community is inspiring. I am thankful for the community I grew up in and the large number of my friends who now also call Riv their home!

This is the ministry that changed me. As an 8th grader I was introduced to a college aged girl, Melissa Bosel, who told me that I was important and wanted to know me and invest in my life. Throughout high school I continued to be blessed with amazing role models and decided to become a leader myself when I attended college at Michigan State University. An international, non-denominational ministry, Younglife stands for going to where kids are and walking alongside them in their journey.
