Staff (Ann Arbor) - firstname.lastname@example.org
Erica first joined HMCC as a freshman at the University of Michigan in the Fall of 2008, and became part of the international student Global Access ministry. Although she had grown up in a Christian family, it wasn't until she joined HMCC that she really powerfully and personally encountered God, deeply experienced his healing love, and ultimately committed to a life of building his kingdom instead of her own. After graduation, Erica stayed in Ann Arbor to continue serving as a leader in Global Access, while also working first as a barista at Starbucks, and later as a paralegal in an immigration law firm. In January of 2017, Erica joined HMCC as a full-time staff member to meet the executive, administrative and event-planning needs of the church, and she is excited to see where God will lead HMCC in this season. In her free time, Erica enjoys exploring all the coffee shops of Ann Arbor in search of the best soy latte and cold-brew coffee in town, and hanging out with friends.
