Madeline Martinez Mission Advancement Coordinator
Areas of Ministry: Community: loving, serving and nurturing others
Family: Spirited, Head of the (loud) house mama to the handsomest, curly haired wild thing I've ever seen.
Saved: Church addicted and self proclaimed 'Jesus Freak' from elementary up until high school. Struggled with wanting to live out the vision God placed in my heart about the woman I would one day become and the desire to fit in with the world around me. Found the true grace of God and laid my life down during an unplanned pregnancy through Embrace Grace. Today, I see the love of God through my son and the vision he gave me becomes a little clearer in the mirror everyday.
