Carrie has served as campus staff since she graduated in 2013. She works in Maryland at Montgomery College. She has a heart for challenging students to reach new corners of campus with the gospel and is looking forward to planting at a new campus in the fall. You can support her ministry at https://donate.intervarsity.org/donate#17478.
Though I was strongly against attending my local community college, I’ve actually ended up being called to that exact campus to plant an InterVarsity chapter. (Jesus can be funny like that.) And while there are definitely challenges, the truth is I love ministering here!
But I believe, as a follower of Christ, that it is essential to be an intentional, active member of a church community. Membership facilitates opportunities for vulnerable relationships and accountability.
As I’ve learned more about Eights I’ve realized that they are generally self-confident, confrontational, strong, assertive, honest (sometimes brutally), and decisive people. When I read that description now I feel like it pretty accurately describes me.
