I’m Elana, and I love coffee with friends, the outdoors, game nights, and my Garden family! I got to serve at the Garden during our early days (remember Cohiba, anyone?), before the Garden launched me into overseas ministry in 2011 through OC International. I served alongside the underground church in Indonesia for 3 years before returning to the States with some big bummer health issues. What a wild ride it has been, but Jesus has proven ever faithful!
I now get to serve missionaries around the world through Pastoral Care, offering support through spiritual direction and retreats, lay counseling, listening prayer and life coaching. It’s a privilege to help “hold up the arms” (Exodus 17:12) of those who are serving Jesus among the poor and oppressed of the world, and what an honor to be supported as an extension of the Garden’s heart for missionary care. Thank you, dear Garden family!
I love connecting with people over coffee (even if it is via Skype since I'm based in Colorado), so if you’re ever interested in hearing more about the ministry or even simply sharing what God is doing in your life, please let me know!
