She is a recent graduate of Mississippi State University this past December of 2012-go dawgs! Being the daughter of a pastor and a teacher she developed an early appreciation for ministry and developed a huge heart for people, particularly children and youth and teaching them the word of God. Her parents are both now doing full time ministry with youth in French Camp, MS and she got to spend a year there building relationships with the students and staff while completing her student teaching. Her family has been an amazing support system for her as she has graduated and decided to pursue full time ministry. She enjoys running, traveling, and being with her family! Mollie enjoys camp and has been invested in the camp ministry, inside and outside of Kanakuk for five years. She also has a huge passion for parents and serving families and was privileged to work at K-Kauai this past summer.
