Laurel oversees the Helpdesk in HUB Support at the BRN. Whenever a church comes to the BRN with a question, she directs them to the right person or department who can answer their questions. She also puts together the resources for the missions offerings, such as the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering for International Missions. She also helps to process many of the church evangelism grant requests, preparing them to be sent for approval from our directors. Laurel graduated from Nyack College with a bachelors of science degree in youth and family studies. Outside of the BRN, she also works as a children’s discipleship director for a local church.
