April has pastored in the local church for nearly 20 years. Secretly, she’s a total girly girl, reads more than she can put into practice, and is still crazy about her high school sweetheart, Brian. Together, they co-parent the most beautiful Ethiopians, Judah and Addise, and bio son, Asher. Her first book, Redefining the Role of the Youth Worker: A Manifesto for Integration is a compelling vision for the church’s role with teenagers. She is a member of FYI's Advisory Council, a student ministries associate for Slingshot Group and the Director of Coaching for The Youth Cartel.
