Alyssa (MAC ’23 ) grew up in the golden state of California and has always had a passion for being in relationship with people. She was delighted to spend her time at Liberty University, discipling students and teaching them how to study Scripture. As Alyssa graduated, she found herself exploring the mid-west and working a job where she got to walk with adolescents through the most painful parts of their stories. She began wondering about healing and hope for those adolescents and how her belief in a kind God would impact them. This curiosity led her to Covenant Seminary, where she gets the honor of learning and exploring theories while inviting God into the process. Alyssa finds great joy knowing that one day, she’ll re-enter that space with adolescents, inviting them to tell their stories in a space that cultivates safety and freedom.
