After relocating from California in 2015, my family spent several years searching for a church we could call home. We found Citizens in 2020 and have been continually blessed by God through the ministries here.
I came to know the Lord as a child, and God has always been faithful to provide for my every need and protect me through difficult situations. Growing up in the inland valley of Southern California proved challenging, as gang influence and violence were everyday occurrences. But God, through His relentless love and guidance, always kept my family safe. As my walk has grown, God graciously continues to teach me to seek His kingdom and righteousness first. My life verse is from Joshua 1:9, as God promises to be with me wherever I go.
My husband and I have been married since 2003 and have two incredible children and one crazy dog. In addition to serving at church, we enjoy all things outdoors, traveling, and spending time with friends and family.
My hope for Citizens is that the saving grace and mercy of our Savior will be evident in the ways we love each other and our surrounding communities. I pray that we can be consecrated to Christ, continually separating ourselves from everything except that which we have been called to do by our Savior.
We hold to the central beliefs of the Christian faith, as communicated throughout Scripture and summed up in the ancient creeds of the Church.
