Bible Adventure/CIA Equipping Coordinator
When Larissa was pregnant with her son, Wesley, her husband mentioned the opportunity to serve with Bible Adventure. After giving birth she was no longer working, and the Holy Spirit brought what her husband had told her back to mind; she decided to get connected with her local Bible Adventure program. After volunteering at Dillsburg BA for half a year, she became an Equipping Coordinator!
Larissa received her BS in Geosciences with a Watershed Management concentration from Mansfield University. After years of working with kids in various roles and seeing how much of an impact Bible Adventure can have on children, she’s excited to have the opportunity to equip and encourage volunteers to do the same.
Larissa is a PA native. She’s lived in Nazareth, Mansfield, and Galeton. She and her husband Thadius also spent 2 years in Kentucky, but now live in Dillsburg, PA with their son, Wesley, and blood hound Abraham.
Birding, hiking, camping, gardening, and kayaking are some favorite outdoor activities of Larissa’s. She also enjoys taking their bloodhound Abraham on walks, reading SciFi/Fantasy novels, playing board games, and being an active member of her church and community.
In her role at Joy El and as a mom, she reminds herself each day of Matthew 19:14, “But Jesus said, ‘Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of Heaven.'”
