Fun Fact About Myself: I love spending time in bookstores, I refer to Barnes and Noble as my second home.
I’m Danielle White, I was born and raised in a small town an hour outside of Chicago. I grew up going to a Lutheran church; where I went through their confirmation class, mostly as a tribute to my grandpa that passed away in 2001. He was a big part of the reason I went to church throughout my childhood. My teenage years were when I felt the farthest from Christ; I let anger and resentment build up in me that instead of turning to Christ for comfort and guidance, kept me far away from Him.
In 2014, I found myself moving to Florida; and my very first Sunday in Florida I was at The Avenue Church. I will say attending church in Illinois was a seed being planted, but it wasn't until I started attending the AC that I really started to understand and grow in my faith and in the word. Fast forward, I'm still here. I walked into The Avenue Church a very quiet, sad, anxious girl; I am very proud of the joyful, and a less quiet, woman that now walks into church. I thank God and my AC family for being a major part of that transformation. I have gotten to help with greeting, the connection table, city events, groups and studies, Ave Kids, Ave Youth, have been baptized at the AC, and even gone on mission trips; all things I would have never thought I would ever be a part of.
I am so very grateful and happy to be working for The Avenue Church, and can't wait to see God's further plans.
