Julia KeenerJulia serves on our Marketing & Communications Team and our Development and Empowerment Team. 

You keep ministry momentum moving when you support the ministry of our stateside missionaries: our Lifeline staff who dedicate their lives 24/7 to restoring hope around the world. Your prayers and donations enable our staff to be your hands and feet, as God's love is shared through Lifeline's ministry communities!

Julia shares:

Being involved with Lifeline is one of the greatest joys in my life! I found Lifeline very incidentally in 2010 after the earthquake in Haiti, as I was looking for a local organization involved in Haiti so that I could simply make a contribution to earthquake relief efforts.  That’s all I thought I wanted to do – just drop off a check.

But that’s not all that God had planned for me. Over the course of that very week, and then the following year, I kept being led back to the office, sometimes not knowing why I was there yet again. The folks in the office graciously talked with me, answered my questions, and chuckled about seeing me repeatedly. Over time, I felt the tug that the Lord wanted me to play a role at Lifeline and even in Haiti somehow. So much for just dropping off a check, huh?

I now work for Lifeline as the Youth Coach (advocating for quality education and development opportunities) and on the Communications Team (gathering stories from the field about the impact Lifeline ministries have on people and communities). I have the JOY of working in both roles with our field staff.

As a former French teacher, I have fun with languages and have picked up some Haitian Creole; Spanish hasn't come as easily to me! I am still amazed at how God wove my background, passions, and gifts together in this role.

During my down time, I enjoy boating, reading, traveling with my family, exploring local and national parks, dinner and outings with my husband and friends, and the local arts scene.
