How Long Have you been connected with Mountain T.O.P. : 5 years
Favorite Event at Mountain T.O.P. : Youth Summer Ministry – It’s a time you get to grow in all aspects of life alongside your friends and family. You get to get out of your comfort zone and live a little.
What is your favorite part about Mountain T.O.P.?: The fact that there are four needs that we hit as a ministry. I wholeheartedly believe that in order for revival to be successful, you must hit all 4 needs: spiritual, social, emotional, and physical. The great part about this ministry is a lot of people tend to forget, not know about, or even just overlook that there is poverty in our own backyards, so through Mountain T.O.P., I am able to serve and work with people in these impoverished communities to help build a better future.
A Short story about your time at Mountain T.O.P?: I worked on the 2018 Summer Staff as a Program Manager. It was the best experience of my life. I got to connect with my staff, which ultimately became my family. I wouldn’t be in the position I am at this moment if it hadn’t have been for my staff that helped get me here. I came into a position being the new person along with the other 75% of my staff. I had never worked the Ministry Coordinator position, I have only been a camper. Same as my Field Manager, Hunter. If you would have met us both this summer, you would come to know us as Thing 1 and Thing 2. Not only did I grow this summer with my brother Hunter, but I also got to learn about the crucial need for Day Camp with my Day Camp manager, Kate. Together, we took on positions that were new to our eyes but in the end, it’s safe to say, we were trained very well by our phenomenal director, Jess. Jess helped us grow and become the great leaders that we got to be on the mountain. Now of course, I can’t leave out the importance of my Ministry Coordinators. They helped me better understand the importance of their jobs. They also helped me grow as a leader. Liz, Kara, Danny, and Elliott were amazing Ministry Coordinators and I couldn’t have asked for better people to lead. Overall, Mountain T.O.P. has groomed me up into the person I am turning out to be. It has helped me find my purpose in life as well as many others. It all started with my Pastor, Justin Miller, bringing me to Mountain T.O.P. five years ago and now here I am working with the Ministry full-time. Jehovah Jireh, the Lord provides!
