Ministry Focus

Lisa was appointed with Missions Door in March 2010. She serves Neighborhood Ministries in Phoenix, Arizona. Their mission is “to be the presence of Jesus Christ, sharing His life-transforming hope, love, and power among distressed families of urban Phoenix, to ignite their passion for God and His kingdom.”

Lisa serves with Moms’ Place, holistically loving and discipling teen mothers. She also works with first generation college students supporting them as they dream about college and meet career goals through the College Access Program. Her heart’s desire is for them to know they have a hope and future in Christ (Jer. 29:11).

Faith Story

Lisa grew up in the church. At the age of 8 she put her trust in Jesus Christ as her personal Savior. While on a high school summer internship in Los Angeles, California God broke her heart for the urban poor and called her into full-time urban ministry.

While in college she served with Sunshine Gospel Ministries in Chicago, Illinois for four years. After graduating from Moody Bible Institute in 2000, she lived in Los Angeles for over six years.

There she served among families currently or previously homeless through Central City Community Outreach. Lisa has also led teams and served internationally (Brazil, Africa, India, Bosnia, Mexico, Costa Rica, etc.).


Lisa is a licensed foster mother and currently raising a teen girl and her 2-month-old son. Lisa has a strong Christian family living in Prescott, Arizona. She loves spending time with her nine nieces and nephews in her “spare” time.
