Courtney is a native of New York State, growing up right across the Pennsylvania border – but she has called Central PA home since 2007. You can “hang-out” with Courtney weekdays from 9 AM to Noon on WGRC. She loves talking about God’s great love story and encouraging you to live with confidence in who you are created to be. Relationships are what matter most to her – connecting and being on the journey of life together. Courtney is a wife and a mom. She is thankful that God allows her to be a part of your journey – as a friend on WGRC!
Before Courtney knew God – He used radio to “rescue” her. Courtney graduated from Mansfield University with a degree in Mass Communications with an emphasis in Broadcasting in 2007. At MU she found a home at her college campus radio station WNTE and discovered a passion for radio. WNTE is also where she met the man she would eventually marry! From college, Courtney moved to Central Pennsylvania to work for a local radio station in Bloomsburg – it was at that station that Courtney met the person who introduced her to Jesus Christ. She then began listening to Christian radio (including WGRC) and God used what she heard to open her up to a relationship with Him through Jesus. After the life changing encounter with Jesus, she felt moved to find a place to serve in ministry. God opened a door for Courtney to join the WGRC family in 2014 and she was eager to take Him up on the opportunity. Courtney counts it as a unique blessing to share God’s love on the same station He used so greatly in her own life!
I met and fell in love with Jesus in my mid-twenties. Prior to that I found myself unsure of God and faith – but was exposed to it in bits and pieces through family, friends and neighbors. I steered myself away from religion while constantly (and silently) wondering (and worrying) about death. In my mid-twenties I began asking questions about death and religion, and through that search I learned about Jesus. It only took a few months for me to realize that I do believe that God exists and His word in the Bible is the truth of life. With the “big three” questions answered (where did I come from, why am I here & where am I going)…my heart was awakened to a new life possible through passionate pursuit of God.
When I met Jesus and came to understand what He did to set me free – there was no way for me to go about life in the same way anymore. Rather than finding religion I found a relationship I had no idea existed. Each day I hope to serve and love like Christ while developing a Christ-centered identity. God gets the glory for everything and every opportunity belongs to Him!
