With over 30 years of service with InterVarsity, Carolyn loves to witness and encourage people growing to become more like Christ. She’s discovered that intentionally choosing to be a minority—through living in South Africa, serving with IFES, being part of a black congregation and an adoptive Cuban family—has enabled her to listen more and talk less. She currently lives in Jersey City, New Jersey.
