Elizabeth grew up attending church at Mt. Zion along with her family. Some of her favorite memories were made during Vacation Bible school, her mission's trip to Ohio, and the many youth group events she participated in.

Elizabeth started as an employee with the Youth Group and then moved into her current role for the children's department. She also coordinates and leads Vacation Bible School. Elizabeth met her husband here at Mt Zion in youth group back in 2015 and just recently got married in 2022.
