Jessie was raised near Campbellsville, Kentucky and was involved with church alongside her parents and four siblings. While pursuing a business degree at Lindsey Wilson College she served as an intern with CrossRoads in their Appalachia field in eastern Kentucky. After college, Jessie worked with a local accounting firm in Campbellsville for over four years. In June of 2021, Jessie was able to serve with CrossRoads again in their New Orleans field to help staff a weeklong trip. It was during this time that she decided to branch out in both location and job opportunities and has joined CrossRoads as their New Orleans Team Leader as of November 2021.
The Team Leader is responsible for the oversight of participants and interns, making sure to facilitate a safe, organized, and God centered environments for all those who work alongside CrossRoads. This will also include evaluating and modifying CrossRoad’s ministry presence in New Orleans to make sure every opportunity is used to its full potential and communicating with partners, volunteers, and all CrossRoads members to make sure our ministry goals are met.
While serving in the role, Jessie is not compensated and will need to raise her own financial support. When CrossRoad’s is not hosting groups, she will be able to use her accounting background to work part time jobs but will not be able to fully maintain those or the income while working with volunteers during the busy spring and summer months. Jessie needs people like you to support her so she can better focus on the ministry opportunities available. By helping Jessie, you will be helping Crossroads, even their fields outside of New Orleans, and helping everyone reach their ministry goals of furthering the kingdom of God.
