I started working at Vagabond Missions to shake things up! I have been blessed to spend my entire adult life serving in youth ministry. I have worked in wonderful parishes in Lexington, KY, and Corpus Christi, TX. Most recently, I was blessed to work for the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City. I have seen God do amazing things! I have also witnessed that young people in poorer areas live in youth ministry deserts. The youth groups, conferences, camps, pilgrimages, and retreats are mostly filled with the wealthy. I grew up in the inner city and only came to Christ through the radical intervention of a youth ministry like Vagabond. I pray for a youth ministry revolution that fights for every young person. All of our parishes and schools need this kind of ministry, but I believe that the Lord is calling us first to the poor.
I am excited to see lives change and to see young people, families, volunteers, donors, and prayer warriors fall in love with Jesus through this ministry.
If my life were a movie, it would explain a lot.
