Courtney has a long history with Joy El for one so young. She grew up in Joy El's programs including Released Time, summer camp and the 4.12 Leadership Training Program. She's served on our summer staff for multiple years and is now serving as our 4.12 Female Coordinator while she attends Lancaster Bible College, where she is majoring in Women in Christian Ministries. Courtney calls the Chambersburg area her home and lives with her parents, sister and brother when not at college. In her free time she enjoys reading and writing and time with friends.
Philippians 4: 6-7 have special meaning and wisdom to live by for Courtney: "Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."
