Eleven:28 is a non-profit corporation that exists under the directorship of a board. These wonderful individuals volunteer their time because of their support in the vision of this ministry.
Eleven:28 has poured life back in to my soul and set me on a path to know God in my daily life where ministry and motherhood collide. I am no longer sitting on the couch inside while the people around me enjoy the sun. After Rhesa’s call we began our Houston covenant group. We meet monthly to “check-in” on the state of our souls and for spiritual formation. I also meet monthly, one-on-one, for spiritual direction. These two ministries of Eleven:28 have rescued me from burn out and isolation. They have given me access to life-giving mentoring relationships with other women in ministry. I can say with complete confidence that I would not be serving in ministry today were it not for Rhesa and the ministry of Eleven:28.
But I am still serving after twelve years in Student Ministry! I am the Student and Family Minister at the First Colony Church of Christ in Sugar Land, Texas. I am very close to completing an M.Div from ACU. I am a frequent retreat speaker, bible teacher and writer. My writing has been featured on Scot McKnight’s Jesus Creed and Sean Palmer’s “The Palmer Perspective” blogs. I am married to Ben and together we parent Mason (5), Hunter (3) and Ruth Cate (1). I have no hobbies because we are raising three toddlers.
I am serving on the board of Eleven:28 because I am eternally grateful to be a recipient of this ministry and I will spend my life telling others about the benefits of soul-care for care givers.
