FOUNDER / CEO
"For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do." Eph. 2:10
I am Moses. I've been through all the same objections he's had when God called him to lead the Israelite people out of slavery. Who am I God that you would call me to serve in this way? Who am I to lead these people? What do I have to offer? Praise God He sticks with us when we are mule headed. God knew His plan for my life and how all my experiences would lay out to prepare me for this ministry. God's given me the tools and pruned me to be the exact leader He needs me to be. With a humble and grateful heart I lead this ministry not on my own ability, but on God's grace and power.
With that being said, we have the best team. iL4C is bathed in prayer and rooted in the Word. Every member of our team walks closely and intimately with God. We aren't perfect, but we've been called. Thank you God for equipping the called.
I have been involved with women's ministry as a Bible study leader and teacher for over 10 years. Just as the Lord has continued to set me free from the debilitating lies the enemy held, and tries to still hold over me, God has given me a passion for helping women learn truths from His Word that will help them grow in their faith, find freedom from lies from the enemy and the abundant life Jesus offers with salvation. (John 10:10)
The enemy tries to steal the life God intends for us by feeding us lies. Jesus came to set us free from sin, death and the enemy of our soul. Helping women, and young women, realize the truths found in scripture is my passion and my calling. When we realize the truth in various areas of our lives and faith walk, we will find the abundant life Jesus came to deliver. His truth sets us free from the lies from the enemy. Helping women learn and apply these principles is what I am called to do.
RESEARCH AND SUPPORT DIRECTOR
I first heard of iL4C when our church held one of their retreats. It was an amazing time and I was inspired. The retreat showed me what a huge need there is for building confidence in this generation of girls. After that I started taking steps towards being a leader in my youth group and being a mentor to girls within our church. As iL4C grew my involvement and passion grew with it. I can't wait to see how God works with this ministry and all the lives that will be changed through it.
BUSINESS AND DEVELOPMENT DIRECTOR
I've spent my entire career as a business professional dedicated to increasing the bottom line and streamlining business operations. I served at the first iBeauty 4 Christ retreat working in the kitchen preparing meals for the ladies. Over the two day retreat, I witnessed a transformation in the life of one particular high schooler. I was so inspired by the power of a local retreat, and its impact on our young women. I knew I had to stay connected with this ministry.
I have a Bachelor’s degree in marketing and a Master’s degree in business. I now use these gifts to serve as the Director of Business Development for this amazing ministry. I truly feel that we are raising up the future women leaders of tomorrow. These leaders will raise Kingdom children, serve as ministry leaders, and pass along their gifts to the next generation.
4 years ago God opened our eyes. Young people all around us need deeper relationships with GOD and with MENTORS. Now, we take iLive 4 Christ from our community -> to the WORLD!
Big retreats with hundreds of youth praising GOD = AWESOME. But there's a missing piece... What happens after they leave? Take the retreat to the COMMUNITY. Include mentors from the CHURCH to speak into their hearts. FOLLOW-UP as they grow in their faith. And you've got roots of faith growing deeper and wider than ever before.

We believe in the Trinity: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe in Jesus Christ who came to this earth to save us from our sins as fully man and fully God. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He died on the cross and shed his blood for our sins. He took our sins upon Himself and rose from the dead according to the Scriptures. He is now seated at the right hand of the Father in heavenly places. He will come again to establish His kingdom, righteousness and peace.
The Holy Spirit is a divine person. He indwells each of us once we have been saved. The Holy Spirit gives strength, guidance, and teaches the believer how to walk more closely with God.
The Word of God was inspired by God and given to the authors, so that we may know the truth and will of God for salvation.
We have all sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Through Jesus' death and resurrection we are saved. Once a believer, we are now saints saved by grace.
Salvation has been given through Jesus Christ for all men. We must repent and believe in Him to be born again of the Holy Spirit, receive the gift of eternal life, and become God's children.There will be a bodily resurrection for believers unto life. For the unbelievers, they will spend an eternity in slavery and bondage.The second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ is imminent. We have hope in His return and that is why we live holy living and continued service to God.
