Petra has been serving part time with Child Evangelism Fellowship® (CEF®) of Washington, Whatcom County chapter since the fall of 2015 as the Office Administrator.
Petra was born in Germany, during the time her family was serving as missionaries. When she was almost 5 years old, the Lord called her family back to the States where her dad was a pastor at a local church in Ferndale. She always heard from her parents the message about being ready to go and serve wherever the Lord calls. Sure enough when she was 13 years old, her family was called back to Germany to open up the country for a new mission organization. She experienced planting a church with her parents from the ground up. It was during those years her heart became soft to the desperate need to share the Gospel. She would return to the States on her own to complete her schooling and graduate from the Masters University. After which, she married her husband in 2001 and welcomed their daughter in 2007.
Reaching kids for Christ through providing administrative support to the field missionaries is her passion.
Petra enjoys spending time with her family and friends, watching football, drinking coffee and Bible Journaling. Her favorite season is Fall.
