She began serving as on the Overseer Board in 2014 and now serves and treasurer and oversees the Prayer and Prophecy ministry. Overseeing finances are self-explanatory, however, “as a born again Christian, my passion is Prayer and Prophecy. I absolutely love that God wants a deep, intimate relationship with us.
