THE BEGINNING OF THE MOVEMENT

IDENTITY. Without it, we become aimless wanderers in a world that tries to force an identity upon us. This conversation started between friends who wanted to see freedom come to life within God's children.

It all started with a conversation.

 

Sarah and Kissy, founders of Worthy Movement, desired to see people break free from the stigma of struggling with sin. Having both worked in church ministry, they wanted to broach topics that aren't always discussed in a normal church setting.

 

If we don't understand God's love and grace for us, then how can we truly walk in the freedom that comes from His love and grace?

 

How can we walk worthy if we don't truly understand that it is in Christ alone that makes us worthy?

 

The conversation then led to prayer, and after much seeking and envisioning what this movement could be, Worthy Movement was born.

Great steps of faith were taken when Worthy had it's first conference in 2018. With no idea what the future of the ministry would look like, Sarah and Kissy were blown away by many embracing the vision of the movement.

 

After hosting four different conferences over the first 2 years, Worthy Movement became a Non-Profit. 

The Movement has only just begun.

I grew up in the church and gave my life to Christ in middle school.

 

Having served the body of Christ in various leadership roles of ministry, I found my calling in leading worship to different churches across the Bay Area.

I have a deep desire to see the unity of the Bride of Christ as well as seeing all people set free from the lies the world tells them.

 

Currently, I work as a self-employed photographer, graphic designer and artist. 

My happy place is spending time with my family and friends and creating beautiful things.

Favorite verses:

Psalm 18 and 27

Born and raised in the Bay Area, I didn’t grow up in the church. I grew up in a good home with the knowledge of God. It wasn’t until my Junior year in High School Jesus became my Lord and Savior. 

My life changed because of Christ's love for me. I started serving in the church and was called to Youth Ministry for many years as well as other ministries.

 

My passion and calling is for generations, young and old, to know their true identity and worth in Christ. I love God’s Word and my hope is to share that love to others. 

 

Currently, I am an Admin for a local internet company. I have my BA in Biblical Studies, and I am pursuing my dreams by launching my art business. 

 

I find joy in the simple things. I love a good quality cup of coffee, drawing flowers, and spending time with the ones I love. 

Life verses: Isaiah 40:31 & Isaiah 43:18-19

I was raised by my beautiful Mother. Meeting Jesus at 13 years old, my heart immediately was anchored to the one whom my soul loves to this very day. 
Although my background is quite complicated; and probably should be a novel by now, I would like to say that I am an overcomer of many trials and tribulations. The world got the best of me for far too many years. But because of that,  I am a prodigal daughter who returned home, even if it was at a snails pace. 
One deep passion I have is standing in the gap to bring justice for the unborn and their right to life. 
I truly desire to see every soul come to know who they are in Christ so that they do not miss one day of their God given purpose and destiny here on earth. 
Today, I am a wife and a mother to a precious little girl. 
Life Verse: John 3:8

While I didn’t grow up in the church I did give my life to Jesus as a youth. Much like many others, my past is filled with brokenness and trauma. But God has taken what the enemy meant to harm me and He has used it to grow me, free me, and heal me. 

He is always bringing me back to His original design for me. Reminding me I am worth every drop of blood He spilt on the cross and that He would do it over and over again to ensure He’d be with me forever. 

He is teaching me what it is to think eternally and bring Kingdom wherever I go, just as He did. 

 

For the first 17 years of my Christian life, I lived trying to put to death the flesh. I tried my best to walk in love. But it was all religious, behavior modification. It wasn’t until I encountered Abba Father in a vision that would change me from the deepest part of my being. I finally knew His radical and personal love for me. 

I had received the baptism of the Holy Spirit right before having this vision and now I know- we love because He first loved us. 

It’s literally impossible for us to love. We have to first surrender to His love. Surrender every part of ourselves to every part of Him. And then, and only then, can He freely move through us and be brought glory. Then and only then, can we die to self and live as Christ. Then and only then, can we love as He loves. 


Luke 10:18-20
