My name is Lauren, and I’m a class of 2020 NC State grad with a Bachelor’s degree in Social Work.
I encountered Jesus for the first time when I was eighteen years old and His love has forever changed my life. I moved to Raleigh and fell in love with the city and the people here, and with this beautiful church family that welcomed me in and made me feel at home. I’m currently interning with this church, working with our partnerships, our college ministry, and helping launch the foster care/adoption ministry and it’s been a ton of fun!
I want to love Jesus and help other people love Him, too. I want to serve and advocate for children & families involved in the foster care system. I want to care for families experiencing poverty & homelessness. I want to invite people in, host meals in my home and let everyone know that there is a place at the table for them, too.
I’ve found a lot of joy and rest in writing about what Jesus is teaching me and my hope is that you can be encouraged by it too.
