Why I work in Youth Ministry: I had a clear calling from God that this would be my particular apostolate, whether professionally or in and through whatever place He sent me....  Circumstances have continually confirmed this, along with my heart towards being an advocate for the "underdog" age group so important to our society. Additionally, I continue to realize I have a real grace of patience and concern for teens and their parents that is unexpected.  I was blessed to have amazing parents, and legendary mentors in the field of youth ministry that have molded and formed me in needed ways for this sacrificial ministry of the Church, for His glory.
