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. After four years of mentoring students in the faith and working to reach each campus with the gospel, she spent time refining her communications skills as Marketing Director at a local health clinic. No matter where she’s worked, her greatest joy has been witnessing Jesus transform the hearts and minds of the people around her.
Ashworth became Elizabeth’s church home in the fall of 2016. After several years of serving on the hospitality, prayer, and leadership teams, she felt led to join Ashworth’s staff team as the Team Lead of Ministry Services. Her and her husband, Garrett, currently live in Norwalk and love calling Ashworth their church home.
