She is a seminary student at Boston University and holds a B.A. in Christian Education from Pfeiffer University. Laura worked in local churches doing youth and children's ministry during college and spent several summers on staff at Mount Shepherd Retreat Center in Asheboro, NC. Laura loves baking and hopes to open a bakery and youth outreach center one day. She is excited about the summer event theme of "One Bread, One Body."
