We are excited to welcome @cassienoeker to our Destination Jesus speaking team for 2024! Her breakout session will speak to "Why Your Story Matters - Healing of Identity!" #djspeaker2024 #destinationjesus2024

Cassie is a world traveler enthusiast with 10+ years of ministry experience. She has worked in youth ministry, street evangelization, and mission work across the Midwest and Texas, and has been associated with ministries such as Adore Ministries (where she was a full-time missionary for 2 years), Blessed Is She, and St. Paul Street Evangelization. She currently works as the Director of Evangelization/Youth Ministry for 3 parishes in West Michigan. Her powerful, healing encounter with Jesus when she was 19 has given her a mission to bring the love of Christ to everyone she meets – whether that be a friend over coffee, a teen in the classroom, or the homeless on the street. Captivating hearts for Jesus and facilitating encounters with the God who loves each person so intimately and uniquely is what makes her come alive! She uses her gifts of passionate and sassy storytelling to bring the love of Christ to help set young people free.
