Meet 5 young disciples setting a year apart in Lansing, Michigan for a lifetime set apart.
The GAP Program allows young people from all over the world to be on the front lines of the Kairos mission. Gappers take a year off of school or work to move to a new city, live in Christian households, and serve in a variety of ways. If you want to keep up with what this year's GAP class is doing, make sure to like and follow their page Kairos GAP North America!
Hi, Y'all! My name is Becky Jacobs and I am from the dairy-filled (and beautiful!) land of Wisconsin. I love watercolor, breaking out in dance, exploring waterfalls, hiking, and doing anything outdoors with my family; sheep farming (most of the time)! I came on this GAP year to be more open to God's plan for my life because I want to spend the rest of my life serving Him. I also hope to grow in loving those around me! #andnowi'mhere
Hello! My name is Katherine Kebe and I am from Columbus, Ohio. I am quite fond of reading, history, reading history, and tickling the ol’ ivories. I also enjoy spending lots of time with my family, listening to big band music, watching quality films, and having a good laugh. I am super stoked to delve deeper into my faith as I grow in my love and service of others this year!
Hailing from the great Vancouver, Canada - I am Julian Piezas! Prior to entering my GAP year to serve the Lord on new soils, I studied Sciences at UBC. Some of my passions include music, art (photography and design), food, and the Gospel - which I’m delighted to share with others through my GAP services this year. Talk to me about superheroes, basketball, Canada, and Netflix, among other things!
Hi all! My name is Kelsey Stone and I hail from beautiful Ypsilanti (Ip-si-lan-ti), Michigan. I can often be found with a mug in my hand and debating my housemates and friends about various topics. I also love reading, pretending I know something about music theory, and baking (I make killer brownies). This year I hope to dive into radical discipleship and learn more about myself and the community in Lansing!
Hello! I am Olivia Harvey, and I grew up in the lakeshore town of Spring Lake, Michigan. I enjoy a good movie or two, dogs, competition, card games, Christmas, Parks and Rec, and just being myself around people I love. I look forward to God's work with me and through me, this year by helping me to grow in love for Him and my neighbor. I trust that by this time next year He will have made me a better and stronger radical soldier for Christ!
