Kecia grew up in the Vancouver, Washington area and was first introduced to Josiah Venture as a student at Multnomah Bible College. As she listened to a JV missionary share about the youth of Central and Eastern Europe and JV’s vision to reach them by partnering with the local church, she felt God place a desire in her heart to serve the youth of Europe. While serving with JV in Hungary as a summer intern in 2012, she felt this desire deepen as she saw firsthand the need for Christ and fell in love with both the youth and the country. Kecia returned to Hungary full-time in 2014. She partners with a local church in Veszprém and spends her time volunteering in her local church youth group, discipling and mentoring young women, developing next generation leaders, and providing administrative support for Rob, the team leader. She loves making Hungary home and it is her hearts desire to see the youth of Hungary equipped to make disciples and the local church thrive as the bride of Christ.
