Elizabeth was born and raised in Jefferson, IA. She spent much of her childhood playing sports and attending summer church camps. Following high school, she attended Central College in Pella, IA, where she majored in Communication Studies and Spanish.
Elizabeth moved to Des Moines in 2016 to work as a Campus Staff Minister with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship at Drake University and DMACC. She’s spent the past three years mentoring students in the faith and working to reach each campus with the gospel. She has no greater joy than witnessing Jesus transform the hearts and minds of the students she serves.
Ashworth became Elizabeth’s church home three years ago. The hospitality and welcome she experienced as a new-comer encourages her to serve on our prayer, hospitality, and children’s check-in teams while actively participating in Ashworth Under 30.
