Elizabeth serves as the Program Director and oversees our interactions with the schools here in Oklahoma City. Her efforts maximize the potential of our team and allow us to more effectively minister here in the community.

“To say I love people would be an understatement. I love every opportunity I have to be around people, to laugh with them, to listen, to find ways to encourage others. My desire is to love Jesus and glorify the Lord with my life. Volleyball is one of my favorite activities. I also enjoy capturing people’s life stories through photography. Playing piano, violin, and guitar are some of the other ways I use my spare time.

I’ve grown up in Tulsa, Oklahoma, but the past several years I could be found traveling for missions. I’ve traveled to 38 States in the U.S. and 15 countries on 4 continents. Throughout my travels I have found that each country has its own unique culture and people that I have come to know and call friends.

I am convinced there is no other worthwhile way to spend my life except to know Jesus Christ and give my life that others may know the joy of a relationship with Him. I am grateful for the platform In The Gap provides for me to live out the passion God has placed in my heart. Here I am able to see children and young adults know Jesus and see that there is more to life than living for themselves. Galatians 2:20 says, “I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”
