Name: Hannah Gillrup
Title: Director of Church Ministries
Joined the OSLC staff on July 1, 2020
Role on Team (basic job description): Ministry with our 6th-12th graders in fellowship, worship, discipleship, and mission work.
Where did you grow up, or where are you originally from? I was born in Florida and lived there till I was 16, then I moved to Washington State where I was called into ministry.
What can you tell us about your immediate family? My mother lives in Washington with her husband Dave and their three huskies (I technically claim one is mine), My father lives in Florida, my Older Brother is stationed at Hill Air Force Base in Utah, and I have two stepbrothers who live in WA.
What do you enjoy about your work? Well, there is a lot, but I truly love sharing the love of Jesus in the good times and the bad times. I love sitting in the rawness of scripture with youth and connecting the community of young adult Christians. I also love finding new ways to communicate the Gospel and connect people with the church through technology and communications.
Something unique about me is: that I will always prefer other cultures’ cuisine over American food… but I’m sure many would agree.
What are your hobbies? I love to lift weights, and do things that challenge my fitness like triathlons, watching anime, and exploring new foods!
What is your favorite Bible Verse, and why? Exodus 14:14 “The Lord your God will fight for you and you have only to be silent” – Reminds me that all things in this world may fail you, but God will ALWAYS fight for me, even to the point of death, all because he Loves me.
