Kerry came on staff as the Director of Missions and Outreach in November 2021. Before this she was a stay at home/homeschool mom for 17 years. She also founded and ran a non-profit in Uganda for 6 years that worked with single mothers in Uganda through business training, financial stewardship and learning marketable skills. The organization also had over 50 girls in school through their education sponsorship program. The decision was made to shut the organization down in December 2020 due to covid hardships in country as well as a nudging from God.
