Title/Role: Young Adult Minister

About Me: I grew up in a Christian home, but do not believe the real transformation occurred until I started attending Northpoint Bible College, formerly known as Zion Bible College. I graduated in May of 2014. My passion is teenagers and seeking a better future for them, both in practical and spiritual ways. I love people!!!

Where I am From: Originially Rochester, NY . Moved to Haverhill, MA after graduating Northpoint Bible College in May of 2014.

Work/Ministry Experiences: I have been a youth leader in a church setting since my junior year of high school up until 2022.  I also spent several years working at the Teen Center at the Haverhill YMCA.   In 2019 I was part of a team that helped launch the SCNE Youth Center.  I served as the Teen Program Director until 2022 until we launched the Young Adult Program, which I began directing mid 2022.  In 2023, I began running the CCF Young Adult Ministry. In addition to my volunteer work, I work full-time as a social worker with NFI in Haverhill.

How Long Have You Been at CCF: Since February of 2015.

Family: My mom’s family grew up in Detroit, MI and my dad’s Bronx, NY. I have two sisters and one nephew. They have recently relocated to Clearwater, FL. I love everything about my family!

Heroes: Jesus, my parents, Becky and Gordon Dahlstrom, and Pastor Marlene.

Favorite Thing about CCF Ministries of Haverhill: I love that the church’s entire foundation is grounded on the WORD and nothing, but the WORD. They love people with the love Christ first gave them and seek to reach the lost every day. 

Food: Italian or Spanish, preferably. However, I love anything that tastes good!!
