MEET OUR NEWEST STAFF MEMBER 
Jesse Bull was born and raised in Lincoln, Nebraska. She was a competitive baton twirler from age 5 through college and was the Head Feature Twirler for the University of Nebraska Cornhusker Marching Band. Following college Jesse found a new church home at Christ's Place Church in Lincoln after spending many years away from God. She began volunteering in as many ministries as she could including, worship choir, small group leader, youth ministry, and greeter.  Later she became a certified Stephen's Minister and found a passion for the one to one care as well as volunteering at Royal Family Kids camp as a counselor. It was here that her heart for foster care and youth ministry was ignited. 

Soon this passion became more than a passion, it developed into a calling. She has worked for Youth For Christ as an administrative assistant and Campus Life Director for a local High School and Middle School club. Following this season, Jesse married Henry. After two years of navigating their call, she saw a post regarding the position with Compact. She prayed about it for a month before applying. 

"Every single detail of this journey has been blessed by God. It has been incredible to walk through this past month and we are not only excited to be here, we know God called us here. This is just the beginning. I am looking forward to the position as the Administrative Assistant and the job itself, it falls in the sweet spot of things I enjoy doing, and am skilled in. But mostly I am looking forward to working for a ministry that I feel passionate about."

The Bull's look forward to getting involved in a local church and the community and it feels like a dream come true! They love outdoors and cannot wait to get out and see more of the beautiful area. 

"We are excited to grow in our careers and grow more in God and ministry. This is an amazing beginning to a new life. We are in awe of God and cannot wait to see what He does next in our lives and how He will use us to impact others."
