Mikayla was born and raised in Maryville, MO. Her parents taught her to love the Lord and how to faithfully serve Jesus at their home church. Mikayla made Jesus her Lord at a young age and felt a call to ministry while on a missions trip in Venezuela. She attended Central Bible College where she met Joey and obtained a bachelor’s degree in Children’s Ministry and a Music minor. Mikayla has been married to Joey for 14 and a half years and they have two beautiful daughters Joelle and Chloe. She is an ordained minister with the Assemblies of God. Mikayla enjoys serving as Cross Pointe’s girls’ ministries coordinator, seeing students grow in their walk with Christ and each other. She also serves as the East Central area kid ministry rep. She is excited to serve at Cross Pointe with Joey and to see people forgiven, healed, and whole in Christ.
