Summer has served in ministry alongside her husband Todd where they have cultivated a passion for authentic, real relationships that transcend past the surface into deeper connections for the purpose of encouragement, support, help, hope and simply doing life together. Within the 20 years of ministry, Todd has served within various churches and various roles, allowing Summer to experience the absolute beauty of ministry, as well as the loneliness, hurt, isolation and fear. The difficult moments have led to some of the most beautiful growth and has given her new passion for ministry and how she loves others. Through the hurts, Summer began to work through the identity of who God had created her to be and in the process unveiled a love and heart for helping others see that there is healing through Jesus. Summer’s fears have shifted into living intentionally who she is and encouraging others to live life authentically, passionately and intentionally in full pursuit of how Jesus has uniquely created them with intention.
