We asked Elizabeth 10 Questions

Elizabeth McCullough serves as Director of Development, reporting on the stories of the awesome things that happen at GenJ, both on the frontlines and behind the scenes. 

She first heard about Generation Joshua before it was even created when she attended Patrick Henry’s Political Activism Camp. Over the past 13 years, she’s worked on several political campaigns, organized training specifically for young activists, and always has a cup of tea ready for long talks about life.

1. What was your first job? 
My very first paycheck came from two weeks of organizing churches in support of the Federal Marriage Amendment. It’s truly a wonderful feeling when the call came in, “Because of the thousands of phone calls, the Senator will vote for the Amendment.”

2. What book are you currently reading?IMG_20150411_130311499_HDR A Praying Life by Paul Walker. Tremendously practical insight on prayer and how to make it REAL in your everyday life. 

3.  What is your dream vacation destination?
I’d love to stay at a little cottage by the shore -- the sound of the ocean calms and restores my soul.

4. Where are you most likely to be seen dining when you want a great meal?
I just LOVE a good burger – Shooter McGee’s offers DELICIOUS half price burgers every Monday. 

5. What is your favorite professional sports team?
Confession: I never watch sports unless I’m with friends! However, I really love to watch the Little League World Series. 


6. What is one way you have seen serious growth in your faith as an adult?  
I learned in a deeper, truer way that I nothing I could do would make God love me more… and nothing I could do would make Him love me less. 

7. What’s the most impacting story you read/watched in your youth?

I read and re-read the Hiding Place, Corrie ten Boom’s autobiography. She courageously risked her life to hid Jews in a secret room in Nazi-occupied Holland during World War II. 

8. What motivates you to continue when life gets crazy?
I know that my Redeemer lives and that goes before me, walks beside me, and is my rear-guard. I can walk bravely ahead in the work He has called me to do because I know He’ll take care of the rest. 

_MG_31689. What were you most surprised about when you started serving with Generation Joshua?
There are so many cool programs available! I mostly knew about SATs and camps. But there’s the iCitizen online course, the Benjamin Rush Awards, and so much more.

10. What’s one piece of advice that has helped shape the course of your life?
"The will of God is never exactly what you expect it to be. It may seem to be much worse, but in the end it's going to be a lot better and a lot bigger." ~ Elisabeth Elliot
