Kalee - Counselor
I’m from Delevan NY, and I am currently attending Fellowship Bible Church in Beckley, WV. I am a sophomore in the Youth and Family Ministry program at Appalachian Bible College.
For my whole life I have grown up in a Christian home and attended church. At the age of 5, I made the decision to ask forgiveness of my sins and receive Christ into my life, and my mother helped me "pray a prayer." Being as young as I was, there was no real change in my life until I was 13 years old. I attended a small prayer group at school and one of the girls challenged the group to really consider our relationship and spiritual life. The Holy Spirit really grabbed ahold of my heart that day and I rededicated my life to Christ. There was a complete spiritual turn around, and I began to yearn for more of Christ. Then in the summer of 2013 I had the opportunity to work at a local Bible conference teaching kids. Through that ministry I saw God use my testimony as a tool to teach and encourage others. Since then I have felt a leading to minister to others with my life. I have been striving to learn and grow in my personal walk with God in my devotions and time spent with Him. Sometimes I struggle but I trust God and He has always brought me through. He continually gives me more joy while serving Him!
I really wanted to serve at Alpine because I am looking forward to interacting with the kids and watching them learn and grow throughout the week. I am also excited to personally grow and see God work in my own life!
