Being a disciple or follower of Jesus is a lifelong journey that is best done in community. The Designed Online Discipleship Cohorts are an opportunity for women to journey with other women across the Covenant as they draw near to God, grow in Christ, and partner with the Holy Spirit in intentional ways. These cohorts are designed for ALL women, in ALL stages of their faith journey.
The Designed Online Discipleship Cohorts begin the week of May 10th and will meet twice a month, including in October. The cost of the cohort is $50.

Mondays at 10am
I have been a Covenant missionary in Mexico with ECC Serve Globally since 2003. My main focus in ministry has been serving youth and women through spiritual formation, leadership development, and community transformation. I am currently in the Spiritual Direction certificate program at NPTS and I love walking with individuals and groups in their discovery of God in their relationship with themselves, others and the world. This group will be for Spanish-speakers.
Mondays at 12pm (CST)
I see God at work in everyday experiences and is determined to live in the freedom he promises. As wife to Eric and mother to three school-aged children, I use humor and candor as navigational tools, and challenges those around me to step into the gifts that God has given them. I work with children with intellectual disabilities, love to travel, and believes fully in the health benefits of dark chocolate.

I have the blessing to be an ordained minister in Word and Sacrament and have served in the Evangelical Covenant Church for 27 years. I’ve played many roles in the ECC but most importantly I’ve been able to serve my Latino community here in the city of Chicago, and have also been able to return to Mexico and serve my sisters. As a pastor, a counselor, a mentor, and now as a coach my calling is to help people spiritually and to also help them grow in their secular lives which is something I hope to convey in this Spanish speaking cohort where we can share our cultures, our language, and our God.
