Lead team

The Baptist Student Union believes in student leadership. Our GTR Lead Team consists of students that want to help students to know Christ and to make Him known through service, evangelism, prayer, and so much more. The BSU ministry is first lead by the discernment of the Holy Spirit, and is then heavily influenced by the student leadership. These students play a critical role in the mission of the BSU.

Bio: I am currently a sophomore at EMCC, and I will be transferring to MUW in the Fall to pursue my degree in communication that I hope to use on the mission field following school. I am extremely passionate about social justice and have a knack for making people laugh which I am PROUD of. I quote vines in everyday situations and puns, sunsets, coffee, and dry humor sitcoms. I also love to travel, abble in photography, read, and watch movies, especially the ones you can be really nerdy about-like Star Wars and Marvel. I can't wait to see how God uses this year for His kingdom through BSU!
