Young Adults Group Leaders
Kish is from Denton, Texas (outside of Dallas). She moved to SLC a year and a half ago to get involved with what the Lord is doing in the Salt Lake Valley. She went to Texas A&M University, and she currently works at Huntsman Cancer Institute as an exercise physiologist-think medical personal training. Kish has been at Lifestone since June of 2018 and is loving it. She serves in kids, youth, and with the young adults. For fun, Kish enjoys anything active--hiking, camping, sports, etc.--as well as reading and crocheting. Her favorite thing about Life Groups is building relationships with people and really being involved with the discipleship process of introducing people to Jesus and helping them grow in their relationship with Him.
Camden came to Salt Lake City via New Mexico a little over a year ago, and is currently studying music at Salt Lake Community College. He discovered Lifestone with his family in January 2018, and was quickly drawn in by a genuine community of believers rooted in the Word and swimming in God’s love. Soon thereafter he was roped into playing for the worship team, where he currently serves. In his spare time, you can find Camden hiking, reading, or banging his head on a piano. New to the concept of Lifegroups when he first joined, Camden has come to appreciate their unique ability to foster meaningful relationships between believers. Church is where we worship, but Lifegroups are where we see God’s love fully realized.
