Alex does an amazing job leading our RCC Kids ministry and you’ll love reading her answers to these questions:
You joined the RCC Launch Team right out of college. What made you want to be a part of RCC?
During my senior year of college, I wanted to be a part of the RCC Launch Team out of a desire to help plant a church and reach families in an urban city. Although I thought that it would look differently than is did when I planned to move to DC to help start RCC, I quickly saw that the Lord wanted to work in and through me in this city in ways that I could not have asked for or imagined.
What’s your favorite part of living in D.C.?
My favorite part of living in DC is continuing to see how the Lord has and is building a community of believers around me through his local church and allowing me to be apart of inviting others into it as he does so. When preparing for our launch, I may have said that passion was the central reason that I moved to DC, and while that is still a major factor in why I love being here the people are now what keeps me here and he his growing my love for this city alongside of this.
What do you think it the biggest misconception people have about serving in RCC Kids?
I think that the biggest misconception people have about serving in RCC Kids is that we are simply caring for the children during service; however, the children who are in RCC Kids are loved and served not only through the care given but through the truths about our God that are taught each Sunday.
How has leading RCC Kids strengthened your relationship with Jesus?
Leading RCC Kids has strengthened my relationship with Jesus by teaching me to come to him with a childlike faith, full of curiosity and openness to learn. In doing so, I have also learned to simplify the gospel and truly rest in its certainty in the midst of a world with so many unknowns.
If you could travel anywhere in the world for a month, where would you go?
I would go to Pittsburgh for a month to spend time with a friend before she begins school. It is sometimes a challenge to know and love someone from a far and I think the Lord would use that time to deepen our relationships with one another and him.
Who is the person who has had the greatest impact on your spiritually? What’s the biggest lesson you’ve learned from them?
My best friend from college, Kelly, has had the greatest impact on me spiritually. Her friendship has taught me what it looks like for iron to sharpen iron. The biggest lesson I have learned from her is to trust fully in the work of the Lord not only in my life, but the lives of those I care deeply for.
In the last 12 months, what’s the book that’s had the biggest impact on your life?
None Like Him by Jen Welkin, has been the book that has had the biggest impact on my life in the last 12 months. It has helped me to see the Lord, myself and others rightly based own his character and how he made us. This has allowed me to receive and give grace and truth more freely as I seek to rest in and walk in his design.
