I have lived in Watertown my entire life and Christian Life Assembly of God Church has been my home for over 20 years. The family atmosphere at Christian Life gives you the feeling of home. Music has flowed through my veins as long as I can remember. When I was in 8th grade, I had the opportunity to develop my gifts in youth worship on Wednesday nights. Since then, God has grown my passion for worship far beyond words. Eventually, I began singing backup and playing drums on Sunday mornings. A couple of years after I graduated from Watertown High School, I began to hear the call to worship leading. In January of 2019, our beloved Pastor Cliff and Mary retired and Mary appointed me worship leader of Christian Life. Now I lead worship every Sunday morning and I am always looking for people with a heart of worship to join our team.
Since 2016, I have also volunteered on Wednesday nights as one of the youth leaders. Being a youth leader, and being a part of their lives has been such a blessing and an incredible privilege. Shari Kjetland and I work with the youth on Wednesday nights to develop and grow their gifts through worship team and media. I have a heart for young people and children, and have been working as a Head Teacher at Little Blessings Daycare for the past five years.
Recently, I became engaged to Tucker Dargartz in December, and we will be married on July 24, 2021. I will be moving to Trinity Bible College in Ellendale, North Dakota in July 2021 while Tucker completes his degree.
