"Hello! My name is Ashley McGahee and I am from Lakeland, Florida. I am fortunate to have known Jesus all of my life and started attending Highland Park Church of the Nazarene around 2009.
I left to attend college in 2012, but was able to stay connected through a satellite campus. I graduated with a Bachelor and a Master's in Social Work in 2015.
I came home and started volunteering with our Youth Group (Middle & High Schoolers) and eventually came on staff as the Youth Administrative Coordinator in 2017. I have continued this position while participating in Mission Trips during the Summers. During the Summer of 2019, I asked my NMI President and other trip leaders in my church how I could become more involved in future trips because I believed God was calling me to the Mission field as a trip leader/organizer! Little did I know, God was calling me out for more & to go into full-time Missions internationally. I continued seeking the Lord's Will for my life and then felt called to South America.
I believe all of these events have led me to my first and current Global Missions assignment as an Administrative Assistant on the Seminary Campus in Campinas, Brazil, South America. I invite you to continue to pray for me during this time and I am trusting God to supply all of my needs every step up the way. I will continue to praise Him while living out His calling for my life. Psalms 28:7 The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him. amcgahee@ samnaz.org"
