Volunteer, 2006-2008 // Staff, 2009-2017
When Catherine first visited a JFA outreach event, she intended to not talk to anyone. But after a couple of hours of listening in on conversations, she saw students’ wheels turning simply because JFA staff and volunteers were asking them questions. She finally got up the courage to ask someone what he thought and ended up having ten conversations that day! A few years later she was raising her support to work full-time with Justice For All.
During more than eight years on staff with JFA, Catherine served as a dialogue artist who created thousands of conversations with pro-choice advocates, and she served as a mentor for thousands of pro-life participants in JFA's Abortion: From Debate to Dialogue Training Program. She led Justice For All’s Trainer Certification Program for three years, strengthening JFA’s team of speakers and mentors with her gifts of encouragement and gentle critique. She also served as JFA's Intern Recruiter.
In 2017, Catherine left JFA to pursue graduate studies. We are confident that wherever she goes, she will create conversations and help each person grasp more clearly his value as a human being made in the image of God as well as the value of every other human being. Please pray with us for Catherine for God's help and guidance as she enters this new phase in her life and continues to create conversations wherever she goes!
