Marlena works as part of the Administration Team in Seattle, WA.
Growing up I always knew that God existed. But, it wasn’t until I was in high school where I fell in love with Jesus and began a lifelong journey with Him. After giving my life to Him, I began to see and learn how quickly God was speaking and moving in my life. I was super involved in high school ministry as God opened doors for me as a “student leader”. I found my gifting of administration and organization during many of the mission trips and youth group events that were going on during this time. From booking plane tickets, to coordinating events, God made it clear that he was calling me to become an administrator. After high school, God called me to become the administrative intern to the Kids Ministry at my home church in Seattle, serving alongside the director, to help plan and execute major annual events and week to week Sunday preparation. As my internship comes to a close, I am super excited to be joining the A Jesus Mission administrative team, coming alongside and assisting Jiross with all the behind the scenes tasks that come our way.
