Faith Elbo

Youth Ministry Intern


Faith lived in California for 15 years where she was involved in Bonita Vista Church when the Lord called her family to live in Orlando, Florida in 2017. It was here in Orlando where she really began to understand the workings of God in her life. Though she has an extensive history of music and is part of the Worship Team, the Lord opened her eyes to see that the Youth are our future leaders and they must be reached. This led her to become very passionate about reaching more Youth and she believes that it is important for them to understand not only the Cross, but also the realities of Jesus throughout their everyday life. 


Alongside her work here at LCC Orlando,  Faith is currently an active student pursuing her studies at a local university.
