Christian Information (Date of Conversion, Water Baptism, Description of personal spiritual growth and maturity)
I was saved during the church family together. A few years ago at the first one. My mother taught us how to pray together, worship together, read the Word together, and seek God on our own.
Finding My Foundation in ChristMy whole life I have been a “Christian”. I grew up going to church as a child with my younger brother. In 2011, my parents got divorced. Shortly after the divorce, my mother met my stepfather. My ex-stepfather was mentally abusive while his son assaulted me during that time. My mother and stepfather got divorced 4 years later. Meanwhile, my father met my stepmother who was very harsh on me mentally like my ex-stepfather had been but in a passive aggressive manner. Middle school through high school I dealt with a lot of self-hate and viewing myself image negatively as a whole. As a result of all the buildup throughout the years and other things in between, I reached an all-time low during my senior year of high school. During my senior year of high school, I met my mentor who was my art teacher at the time, his name is Shane Beyer. On January 8th, 2021, I opened to Mr. Beyer about all the weight I had been trying to carry on my shoulders. After going back and forth, Mr. Beyer prayed of my salvation in his classroom, and I immediately felt the joy of the Lord. This was the first time in a while that I had felt joy, that I felt loved and the first time I experienced true joy. While being a new creation, I struggled on and off with my identity in Christ for the first 9 months of being saved. Living with my father and stepmother, I still fought against depression while trying to follow and trust Christ. On Sunday September 5th, 2021, I fell into a pit of darkness and self-doubt again. I was on the edge of taking my life. I then recognized that it was not “my life” to take. I fell on my knees crying to the Lord and begged for Him to release that thought from ever entering my mind again and show me how to move forward with His plans. Wednesday September 8th, 2021, I attended a service at Northwest Church called “Revival”. We had a guest speaker who preached on how God was the God of the impossible and we need to ask him to do the impossible, not just the possible. That night they did an alter call and I felt an urge to go to the alter and beg for the impossible. I stepped out and asked that the Lord move mountains in my life. I asked that He place me in a better position to fulfill His plans and purposes while breaking free from the depression completely. The next morning, I was removed from living with father and stepmother and moved into my grandma’s house. Immediately, I knew that that was Him moving the mountains in my life. In that instance I finally felt a peace that can only come from Jesus. Ever since, I have been on fire for the Lord, and I can confidently say that my relationship with Him is the best it has ever been. I have an overwhelming desire to know Him more and pursue what He has for me. My calling is to be a high school art teacher, there is no other career for me. High schoolers are the most vital age group to work in because the students are trying to find who they are, they are reaching the end of their brain development and most people who follow Christ make the decision during the transition of being a child to becoming an adult. I will be an art teacher because I have always had a desire to be one, but it was confirmed after my art teacher prayed over my salvation in the public-school classroom at Bentonville West High School.
Describe your leadership potential through your involvement in a church and your school/community.
I serve as a leader at Northwest Youth and am very passionate about the students especially because my calling is to be an Art Teacher one day so I do have a big heart for them and those who are lost in general because I have see God’s goodness.
Describe your dedicated walk with God and a commitment to use your gifts toward kingdom expansion.
Ever since I got saved, I have had a very strong desire for God and glorifying God in all aspects of my life, whether that is through my social media, my social life, church life, etc. My spiritual gifts include Craftsmanship, Exhortation, Teaching, Evangelism and Faith. With craftsmanship, I glorify the Lord through my art work. The other four gifts go hand in hand with my every day life and conversations. I utilize this most with friends and the students at Northwest Youth. Because I am so passionate about the Lord and with the evangelist in me, I always tend to bring the Lord up in pretty much every conversation I can. I love talking about the Lord and His goodness. I know what it was like and who I was before I met God, so the greatest motivation that keeps me committed to His will is the drive to not go back to that old version of me. With this perspective, I find it easier to fulfill His purposes and spread His word.
Describe the career/study path you plan to pursue in college and how that degree will be used to make a difference for the Kingdom of God.
My spiritual gifts include Craftsmanship, Exhortation, Teaching, Evangelism and Faith. I have always had a “burden” for being an Art teacher. I am not the greatest fan of school so I thought I could get away with owning a pottery studio since the lord has gifted name with the talent of pottery. After I was saved in a classroom with my Art teacher/mentor I prayed a lot about my calling after and it became apparent that I am meant to be an high school art teacher. When I am an art teacher, I hope to be the same kind of teacher that I had who became my mentor as I stated. In being an art teacher, I can and will exercise all of the gifts I listed which are so fitting for the calling.
