During my five years as a ministry assistant, I felt God asking more of me. After some wrestling and exploring different avenues within my ministry, I sensed the calling of officership, which gave me such peace.

With a lot of prayer and talking about this with my closest friends and family, the call to be an officer became loud and clear, and I began my application process.

In my training journey as a candidate helper, and now a cadet, I have been challenged in so many ways! I have been blown away by the skills and capacities God has grown and developed in me during this period of intense ministry and leadership formation.

I am so grateful for the people that God has placed in my journey who have spoken into my life at key moments, encouraged me, cheered me on, challenged me and walked beside me.

As I commence my first appointment, I am excited to see how I will continue to grow and develop as a leader, and to see what God has in store for the people and community I will be loving and serving.

Bible verse:I will sing of the Lord’s unfailing love forever! Young and old will hear of your faithfulness” (Psalm 89:1).
