My parents, Mark and Kendra Thompson, joined South Tulsa Baptist in 1996, one year prior to having me. I like to think of South Tulsa as my second home. Before becoming the Associate Minister to Students and Young Adults, I interned three summers for the student ministry. It was during that time that I recognized my calling and passion for teenagers and youth ministry.
Upon graduating from Union High School, I attended Oklahoma Baptist University where I obtained a B.S. in Natural Science with a minor in Bible. While at OBU, I met my now fiancé, Austin. We will be married in May 2020. I plan to further my education by pursuing a Master of Divinity from Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary’s online program.
