From Chelsea Poest: Sonlight Program Director!
December 2010 I discovered a counselor job posting for Sonlight on my college’s website; I applied on a whim. I didn’t have a ton of experience working with children, but I felt as if the Colorado Mountains were calling my name. I had lived in Holland, Michigan my entire life and I decided to attend Hope College, which was also in Holland. Safe to say, it was time to change it up. Little did I know, Sonlight would become my home for the next 4 summers. It became a place where I learned more about myself than I ever imagined and a place where I felt God’s presence more clearly than ever before. Sonlight has given me a community that has become family. It is a place where I can be myself and a place where I discovered my calling in life.
Being at Sonlight year round has been such a blessing so far. I am excited to continue planning for the summer, start to hire staff, and continue listening to God’s direction for Sonlight now and in the months to come. I am so excited for Summer 2015. Youth Ministry is my passion and it has been a blessing being a part of the Sonlight family for the last 4 years. Thank you for all your support and love for this ministry. It is truly an honor to be a part of it.
