||I worked with the Future Leaders Program to equip and develop young leaders who possess a call to full time ministry. I also worked with the Director of Leadership and Staff Development in planning and implementing staff programs that aid in motivating and equipping the staff on how to be more effective leaders and servants in their specific areas of ministry.
I graduated from American University in May 2008 with a B.A in International Development. I was born in Washington, DC but was raised in Lagos, Nigeria. A planner at heart, joining the Future Leaders Program was not on my checklist, but it is an opportunity that I am certain God has led me to. This program has broken my heart to surrender every part of my life to God’s sovereign will and plan. Every day I am amazed by the incredible leaders that take the time to pour into me and encourage me, with the hope that I may also pour into others. Most of all, I am encouraged by the attention the program places on our personal spiritual development.
||I am from right here in Washington DC (well, really Northern Virginia). I graduated from Messiah College with a degree in Biblical Studies. I work for the Gathering here at MBC which has the mission to transform the collegiate generation with the message of Jesus Christ. As a Future Leader I served as the Campus Director at George Mason University. I currently serve as the Associate Director of the Gathering. I think I probably have the best job in the world!|
||As a member of the Creative Arts Ministry, I worked as a Graphic Designer / Motion Graphic Animator, assisting in the production of promotional videos for various ministries, upcoming events, and other elements that can be incorporated into the morning services. Born and raised in Oakton, VA, I have most recently been pursuing the completion of my Graduate Thesis for a Masters degree in Broadcast Design & Motion Graphics from the Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah, GA. My hope and passion is use Digital Media as a means to reach and impact this generation with Gospel Message of Jesus Christ.|
||I was born and raised in Tampa, Florida and got my degree in Youth Ministry at Liberty University. I currently work with the Rock Student Ministries, specifically with the junior high students. I have a passion for students and for effectively teaching them the Word of God. In my role I assist with the assimilation of the new junior high students, help plan and develop our student leadership team, and teach twice a month during the main junior high worship services.|
||Born and raised in Orange County, CA and a graduate of Biola University with a degree and passion for cross-cultural service, it was an absolute joy to be doing ministry in one of the most international and influential cities in the world. As a Future Leader, I worked with the Frontline Arlington Community Campus, working primarily with small groups. I am currently living in Japan with my new husband, and am excited about the ministry opportunities God is opening up.|
||As a Future Leader, I served with Global Impact, which is a ministry of Frontline that coordinates international and domestic short term mission and relief trips. My main responsibility was to shadow and assist the Director of Global Impact, which includes equipping volunteer leaders, coordinating domestic mission trip plans, web updates, and administrative duties. I also led a mission trip to Africa focused on a partnership with World Hope International. I am a 2007 graduate from Hobart and William Smith Colleges, with a dual degree in environmental science and history. I am a native of Buffalo, New York. Currently I am attending Dallas Theological Seminary.|
||I am originally from Omaha, Nebraska. I graduated in 2008 from Moody Bible Institute in Chicago with a degree in International Ministry and an emphasis in Applied Linguistics. In the Future Leaders Program I worked with KidsQuest, providing children and families the opportunity to learn about Christ, while equipping and encouraging them to be in God’s Word and share their faith. Currently I serve as the American University/Georgetown University Campus Director for The Gathering. I constantly see the Lord changing people’s lives and bringing them closer to Him. My passion is to see people grow in the Lord in both knowledge and wisdom.|
||I originally hail from Washington State and I graduated from Penn State University with a degree in Percussion and Music Education. I’ve always felt the call to enter full-time ministry and after spending a year teaching public school, God made it very apparent that he was ready for me to follow that calling with Frontline. I have the privilege of working with some incredibly talented people in Frontline creative arts. Together, we facilitate the Frontline service and strive to find creative ways to engage people in worship. I also get to work with and train musicians and sound production teams in many different areas including The Gathering. I am primarily responsible for overseeing the creative elements of the Arlington and Silver Spring campuses.|
||I was born in Port-au-Prince, Haiti and raised in the DC Metropolitan Area. I recently graduated from American University with a degree in Business Management. The love of my life is Christ. I used to think the Bible was contradictory and that there were many paths to truth. Jesus has rushed into my life, changed me and fulfilled me in ways that words cannot express. My prayer is that everyone would get to know Him. My passion is sharing His truth and love with others. Besides that, I am in artist at heart. I’ve studied martial arts since the age of six and more recently studied Southern Shaolin Kung Fu, winning the Kung Fu Wushu International championship in 2004. I also have had the privilege of being a full time actor and model on an international scale. I also write music and creative writing. But the most exciting part of my life is where God has taken me this past year. As a Future Leader I worked directly for Tysons Campus pastor, Dr. Joe Henriques and learned more about what it means to love God with all your heart, mind and strength.|
||As a Future Leader I worked with the Communications department at MBC. The Future Leaders Program was absolutely amazing! Prior to the program, I spent four years in Washington, DC at American University, where I graduated with a degree in Public Communication. I gave my life to Christ my sophomore year of college, and it’s been incredible to see the ways God has acted in my life in such a short time.|
||I have the awesome privilege of being the Outreach Director at the Frontline Arlington Campus. Our team rocks! I have the pleasure of assisting 20-30 year olds strengthen their relationships with God through worship, small groups, ministry teams and missions. I went to the University of Maryland (FEAR THE TURTLE!) and graduated this past May with a B.A. in Economics. I am humbled every day when I think about this opportunity that God has given me.|
