Jesse began working with Equip in the fall of 2022. A graduate from the College at Southeastern in 2021 with a Bachelors in Global Studies, Jesse is currently working on a Master’s in Marriage and Family Counseling at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. Once graduating with an LMFT, Jesse wants to focus on abuse and trauma therapy and then practice counseling as a missionary in Southeast Asia (hopefully Thailand or Cambodia).
Alongside working with Equip, Jesse started a support group for sexual and gender minorities at a local church and offered training and equipping opportunities to the broader congregation on how to better engage people outside the church who share these experiences.
Jesse is driven by a desire for other sexual and gender minorities to experience God’s love. Despite years of hurt and abuse from former churches, Jesse has undeniably seen God’s faithfulness through the church and wants to continue to better equip the church to care well for the hurting and broken.
Jesse’s preferred pronouns are he/they. To learn more about Jesse’s pronoun preference and why Equip practices pronoun hospitality, read this article on Equip’s Blog.
