Sarah had a love for other cultures from an early age. Growing up in a military family, she had plenty of opportunities to experience new things. Throughout a life of change and transition, wrestling honestly with Jesus kept her sane, and He has continually brought healing and redemption to old wounds and new messes she makes.
When Sarah was in college, she studied abroad and traveled throughout Europe. She saw firsthand the needs of post-Christian Europe and developed a love for that area of the world. After college, Sarah spent 9 months living and working in Dublin and around Ireland with the Missionary/Ministry Apprentice Program (MAP) in Ireland. During her time there, God clearly revealed the passions she has both for culture and for the movement of the gospel into people’s lives—to free them to receive Jesus’ love and live courageously for others.
After Sarah returned to America and began working as a Child Life Specialist in Orlando, FL. During this time, she felt God was confirming a call into long-term missions that had begun stirring during her time with MAP. Since then, she has returned to Ireland full time as MAP staff. MAP is a leadership training program for Irish and Americans that partners closely with Irish church-plants and ministries for outreach. Sarah currently mentors, teaches, helps with administration, and works with a Irish-led mercy ministry.
