LONGER BIO: 

April pastored in the local church for nearly 20 years at two of the most influential churches in the country. For the last several years she’s coached, trained, and taught internationally. She is most passionate about coming alongside leaders who are influencing on the margins of culture. Because April loves teenagers, she loves partnering with Stuff You Can Use and Fuller Youth Institute.

Her first book, Redefining the Role of the Youth Worker: A Manifesto for Integration is a compelling vision for the church’s role with teenagers.

She speaks and writes frequently on being whole in body, mind, and spirit. She loves talking about leadership, soul care, youth ministry, and caring for your body. Secretly, she’s a total girly girl and reads more than she can put into practice. She’s still madly in love with her high school sweetheart, Brian. Together, they co-parent the most beautiful Ethiopians, Judah and Addise, and bio son, Asher.
