Caroline is pure Texan and Dallasite too - born and raised here. She was baptized at HP Pres and became a member by going through the confirmation class as a 7th Grader in 1998. Caroline joined the HP Pres staff family in late 2013 working with Young Adults and Urban Ministry before becoming the Assistant Director of Missions. Prior to joining staff Caroline graduated from Highland Park High School and attended SMU. She is a graduate of Discipleship Training School through Youth With A Mission (YWAM), an inter-denominational missions movement in over 180 countries, and a staff of more than 18,000. She worked in Northern Ireland with YWAM, specializing in reconciliation ministry and traveled to more than 10 conflict or post-conflict nations where she taught local ministries, churches and governments how to promote and live out reconciliation. Caroline loves music, being outdoors and traveling to new places, even if it's just somewhere new in the metroplex. She says it makes her happy for days. Caroline’s favorite verse is Galatians 1:10: For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant of Christ. This is her favorite verse because it is a reminder to her that in everything that she does her motivation should be in Christ and what is pleasing to Him. Shifting one's focus back to Christ always brings freedom.
