09 Jul Episode 33 | One Hope
On Good News For The City we are passionate about saturating the DMV with the Gospel. That involves believers getting out in the community and sharing with others the hope we have in Jesus Christ. “Go and telling” is one thing but “going, staying and serving” is another. Brian Nguyen, Natalie Nguyen and Erin Taylor joined us to talk about how One Hope took the concept of serving a community to the next level.
Born in Columbus, OH, Erin has lived in Northern VA since age 7. In tenth grade, she read a book in which she heard the true gospel for the first time and asked Jesus to be her Lord and Savior. During college, she learned what it meant to live a life on fire for God through the ministry of Campus Crusade for Christ (now called Cru) and a gospel-believing church and developed a love for missions work. She returned to Northern VA after college and found McLean Bible Church in 2009. She has served in the children’s and youth ministries as a small group leader, and in a ministry at a local elementary school as an English teacher for Spanish-speaking parents. Through missions trips to Nicaragua, the Dominican Republic, Uganda, and Kentucky, she knew God was calling her to some kind of full-time ministry. She moved to the mobile home community in March of 2017, and is blessed to serve the community there and work full-time.
