“The place God calls you to is the place where your deep gladness and the world’s deep hunger meet.” — Frederick Buechner
My deep gladness is lived out at Raleigh Youth Mission (a part of Youth Mission Co). I began this past August as the Director of Raleigh Youth Mission and in this short time I have experienced pure joy! I have experienced the joy of numerous agencies that are meeting the needs of those who are experiencing homelessness in Raleigh, NC – filling those gaps that enable them to move through their struggles and temporary situations with dignity and with hope. I have experienced the joy of young people who become aware of the issues that surround homelessness and the complexity of it all – and not becoming overwhelmed but rather come to an understanding that they can make a difference in the lives of others. And I have experienced joy to work with a staff that has a passion for youth and for justice systems that give all people an opportunity to flourish – who have the ability to look forward and ask “How can we meet the needs of those we serve with innovation and creativity?”
