About Sarah

100_2591There are all kinds of ways we describe ourselves to others, and like most of you, I wear many different titles, roles, and hats throughout a given day. I am a student, a pastor, a wife, a daughter, a sister, a friend, an avid lover of books, coffee, wine, cooking, laughing and listening. That’s the short version.

I grew up outside of Sacramento, CA in a great suburb called Granite Bay. After graduating from high school in 1999 I headed north to the beautiful Pacific Northwest to attend Seattle Pacific University. I majored in Educational Ministries and fell in love with the northwest at the same time. It was here that I realized how much I adore rainy days, coffee shops, hooded sweatshirts, and seeing mountains surrounding me. I grew a ton during my years in Seattle, made some phenomenal friends, and landed myself at a church that changed my life. Bethany Presbyterian Church taught me that as a woman, I could lead and serve in a church when others were telling me I couldn’t. It was through working as a children’s ministry intern here post-college that I discovered I loved being in pastoral ministry. Two years after graduating from SPU I headed south again, this time to Pasadena, where I began pursuing my Masters of Divinity at Fuller Theological Seminary.

While at Fuller I was stretched and pushed in ways I never imagined possible, and while I am certainly not in love with Southern California I have made some wonderful friends that have made this segment of my journey unforgettable. I met the man who would become my husband while waiting to cross a street in Old Town Pasadena and 10 months later he proposed to me on that same street corner. We were married in March of 2009 and hope to serve together someday in the areas of youth and family minstries–most likely in the Presbyterian Church, but we are open to wherever God is going to call us. It’s my dream someday to return to the northwest, so we’re praying about heading that direction, but really, we desire to serve God wherever he plants us over the next few years.
