Maddie is from Colorado Springs, CO. She graduated from Discovery Canyon High School in May 2017 and hopes to study medicine in college. Having come to know Christ at a young age and then experience a period of wandering from Him, she has a heart for ministering to children. This passion has only grown over the past few summers as she has served at a camp focused on discipleship of kids in inner-city Pittsburgh.
Maddies’s family has a close connection with SAM missionaries Jason and Jenna Weigner, and her father and brother participated in a short-term trip along the Beni River in 2016. Maddie desires to be involved with missions long-term and hopes that her five-month internship alongside the Weigner family will be used by the Lord to help shape and guide her.
