About Javonna


I have been called by God to be a bridge-builder that establishes and continually grows authentic relationships with people from diverse backgrounds. I desire to use my gifts of hospitality, encouragement, and leadership to journey with and lift up the people of God. I have worked with youth and young adults for sixteen years here in America and have enjoyed watching them discover who they are in Christ, as well as watching them discover that they have the capabilities to be leaders within their church and local communities. Leadership development for youth and young adults is on the rise in the country of Liberia, and I am blessed to be granted the opportunity to serve at Providence Baptist Church as they help young adults and youth discover who they are in Christ.


My mission in life is to improve the lives of adolescents through love, care, and advocacy. This summer I will be living out this mission as I journey to West Africa to serve with Resonate partner missionary Laura Pritchard and Rev. Diggs of Providence Baptist Church. While there I will have the opportunity to train young adults using the curriculum of Grand Rapids Initiative for Leaders, as they prepare to serve in ministry to youth. I will also have the opportunity to interact with the youth of the church and surrounding community. Last but not least, I will have the opportunity to learn about the complex history of Liberia and Ghana.My greatest hope during my time in West Africa is that the young adults and youth know that they have a community of believers throughout the world that believes in them and supports them as they grow in their Christian faith, leadership skills, and also come to discover their calling and purpose in life.
