MEET THE TEAM
DEFINE 2023 is a non-denominational event hosted by a team of volunteers
who are passionate about the next generation knowing the goodness of life with Jesus.
God transformed my life as a young woman through incredible leaders who invested into me. It’s my hope to share that same gift by helping to show others that they are deeply known and loved by God, to embrace their identity as a child of the King, and to thrive in their relationships!
I know this ministry is something I would have been so blessed by as a young girl and now being given the chance to be an older sister for young girls is so special and exciting to me.
I'm excited to partner with Jesus in leading these girls into a deeper understanding of God's love for them and helping them live fully alive in the life Christ died for them to have!
I am excited when a new generation gets chances to hear and see the heart of God. I believe the truth about God's purpose for marriage and for singleness reveals his heart and his character! Knowing God changes our lives.
I love sharing with the girls how valuable Jesus sees them, and how no mistakes are too big for him to forgive!
I see the need and desire for close, deep and life-giving relationship within the context of pursuing God. I want to help others dive into that while I myself am learning how, too!
I know that I have nothing without Jesus, and I want others to experience the richness of His unconditional love and relentless pursuit of us.
I'm excited for the girls to experience the freedom and love found in God's presence as well as the power and impact of sisterhood.
I'm so excited to see what God does with each person involved in Define 2023. Every year He's been incredibly faithful, showing up in ways that far exceed our human expectations; healing and creating new legacies, calling young women into their true identities, setting the bar for true love--an incredible trajectory marker for so many. Wildly grateful to be a witness.
Weekends like Define are so special because we get to shut off the distractions and recenter on Jesus and be reminded that we're not alone as we are surrounded by other sisters in Christ. God has used weekends like this to change my heart and I can't wait to see how He moves in the hearts of each girl who comes to Define this year!
Life can feel so chaotic and the world so scary. And teen girls have so many tricky expectations and shallow values pushed on them. But in Jesus we find peace and hope, and a firm identity and friendship that can't be found anywhere else. I'm excited for the girls to experience that!
I love Define because I get to answer questions that are in everybody's hearts. It is so fun to explain God's purposes behind things--especially things that seem daunting at times like relationships and sex. He is the best and made things the best way!
God so clearly wants us to know how He created us and the good He has in store for us! I know that I have benefited from those in my life shedding light on purity, sexuality, and God's design. So excited to see how God moves!
**Jayna is doing over-seas missions work where she has limited internet access. She'll be flying in to share at Define so we'll get to hear her heart for Jesus then. :)
I love that we celebrate God's good designs at Define and get to offer the next generation an alternative to "learning (relationship) things the hard way." I can't wait to see what our chain-breaking, legacy redeeming God does at Define 2023!
