Heyo! I'm SO glad you're here!
My name is Rynn, pronounced like "rain" from the sky and the ice cream shop on campus, and I'll be serving in the role of Prayer Coordinator for the 2023-2024 year!
A bit about me is that I'm entering my 4th year of Materials Engineering and I recently started a Minor in Urban Studies. Some of my interests are in creation care/climate action, circularly economy, and environmental justice. It has been a long journey of discerning how God wants me to use my degrees, but for now, I feel called to practically address the housing injustices faced by many in Vancouver. In my free time, I love thrifting, exploring the many cafes in Vancouver, and making playlists for every single mood on Spotify :)
In all seriousness, being on the Prayer Team at UCM for the last two years has shaped my faith for the better. Before, praying for others was really out of my comfort zone and it was a spiritual discipline I was unfamiliar with. Yet I've witnessed amazing and wise leaders lead the team and by praying promises over others, I sense similar realities come alive in my own life too. A big motivation for taking on this role has been realizing the connection between prayer and justice. They go hand in hand. I hope to facilitate meaningful spaces where we can pray boldly.
I can't wait to see what God is going to do. Hope to see you around!
