Lizzie has been serving with SPO since 2012. She spent her first year at the University of St Thomas where she led a Household and learned the ropes of SPO Missionary life. Her following two years saw her continue leading women in small group, while also organizing the successful formation program in Minnesota. In her fourth year, Lizzie took over the organizational reins of SNE (School of the New Evangelization). She also leads a Youth Group connected with SPO that raises up young students to choose for Christ in this challenging world, and choose for community life when they reach college! It’s a perfect balance and she loves her crazy life!
A little background on Lizzie: she grew up in Scotland with 3 sisters, 1 brother, 2 parents and a huge extended family. Her family is a part of an international charismatic and ecumenical community; this rich and diverse experience deepened her faith and gave her a real desire for mission. Lizzie felt called to serve as a missionary the year after graduating from the University of Glasgow where she majored in French and Italian. This call to mission led her here to Minnesota where she continues to hear God’s call!
Lizzie loves relaxing with friends, meeting new people, and talking really fast (sometimes an issue on the phone...). She loves Minnesota patios in the summer and the odd gin and tonic... she is beyond grateful to serve with the great cloud of witnesses that surround her in SPO and couldn’t be happier to continue serving with them!
