Staff Code

People over platforms.

Strong people and strong families build a stronger platform for the Gospel. Being part of the Awaken Staff Team will challenge and change us so deeply that our lives and legacy will never be the same.

Work hard. Celebrate big.

We advance together through doing everything with excellence, working hard in every area, and celebrating all that God is doing along the way.

It’s not about me.

We work with each other and for each other. No one is above any task, and we always seek to honor the Lord by honoring those around us.

No cruise control.

Being on the Awaken Staff Team is not just a paycheck. We’re always moving forward, motivated by the fact that what we do has eternal value. No task is beneath us because Jesus is above us!

What we have, you can have.

Awaken exists not only to serve those who come in our doors, but also those who are outside our doors: our city and other churches. Jesus gave freely, so we give freely.

We are guardians of the vision.

The rest of the church takes its cues from us. We will defend the vision that God has given our Pastors, and lead the way in expectancy, honor, and generosity.

God presented an opportunity for me to join the Awaken staff at a time I was praying for direction on how to venture back into working after having my two sons. This was honestly my first time feeling called into a job. I could feel the Lord stirring my heart each time the opportunity was announced from the stage. I had no experience in children’s ministry, but with a background in teaching, I knew if God had laid this on my heart, He would equip me to walk it out. I believe so strongly in the clear, spirit-led, vision of Awaken, that I wanted to do whatever I could to help bring it to fruition.

My job at Awaken came at the perfect time - a time when I wasn’t really sure what to expect next in my life. I had been gearing up for a full-time position somewhere else, and when that suddenly fell through, God made sure that the door to Awaken was wide open for me to step through, no matter how reluctant I was at first. It still blows my mind to think about how my job at Awaken lined up so perfectly and was exactly what I needed at the time without even realizing it.

The staff at Awaken welcomed my husband and I with open arms from the very beginning and the friendships we have made here are definitely irreplaceable. I know that I have never been a part of a work environment where everyone is literally on your team and on your side, which makes working at Awaken so great.

I was brought onto the Awaken staff in November, 2014.  It was an answer to prayer at a time in my life where I didn't know how I was going to make the next rent payment, or where I would pull the money together for other bills.  It's amazing how God has placed me with this great church family and blessed me with the opportunity to serve directly in His church.

I am currently the Technical Director and also lead the Awaken Media ministry.  I never would have thought just two years ago that God would place me where I am, and that just goes to show you that you never know where He will lead you next.
