Tech4Belize

We're a group of young adults involved with Oak Grove United Methodist Church in Chesapeake, Virginia.
Hannah - Mission Trip Leader
Hannah started planning this international mission trip in 2014, and has since been critical to its success. She is the primary contact with the missionaries in Belize, while she attends school at University of South Carolina. Hannah encourages others in the group to assume leadership roles.

John - Young Adult Director
As Director of Young Adult ministries at Oak Grove, John oversees other roles and helps where he's needed. Like Hannah, John doesn't want to be in charge of everything.

Daniel - Technology Leader
Shortly after joining the group, Daniel proposed the idea of bringing technology to Belize. While the specifics have changed, the core idea has stayed the same - to allow students to use computers and give them the opportunity we have.

Laura Jo
I have never been on an out of country mission trip and I cannot wait to see what I learn from stepping out of my comfort zone! I have a passion for people and truly believe God has called me to love and learn from His people in Belize while building something so beneficial to them that I take for granted. I'm a psychology major at Regent University and I hope to use what I've learned working with the people of Belize!

Hi, I'm Katelyn! I am so excited for another great mission trip. God has provided me with a passion for mission work and reaching out to others in need. I am on my way to becoming a nurse and will be attending Virginia Commonwealth University in the fall.

Jacob
As a youth I was on a trip to Mississippi after Katrina, I worked on Habitat for Humanity and many other community level projects. Because of my foundation in service, I joined Alpha Phi Omega National Service fraternity, while attending Embry-Riddle University. I was very involved in service by working at serving my Campus, Chapter, Community, and Country. While going to college I was in NROTC and eventually earned a Commission in the United States Navy. This was my highest calling to serve my Country.
Last year, I found Oak Grove UMC and fell in love with the church family. I have joined their charted boy scout troop as an assistant scoutmaster and continue to pursue service opportunities. I have never conducted an international mission trip, until now. I hope to better connect with my church family and the children we will be serving. I know Christ is with me in preparing to face the challenges for a successful trip.

I am a sophomore at North Carolina state university majoring in business or accounting and minoring in Spanish. I currently attend the Raleigh Wesley Foundation, however I really miss all the "mountain top experiences" that you get from retreats and trips, so im really excited about Belize for that reason in addition to so many others.

Danielle Price
Hi I am Danielle Price. I am 26 years old.I am married to Matthew Price. We have two beautiful children; Alexa, 4 and Kayden, 1. I am blessed to say that I am a stay at home mother. It wasn't until I met my husband, Matt, that I attended a Methodist Church. Our family has been attending Oak Grove UMC for 5 years now. In the spare moments I receive I enjoy crafting. I am a visual arts major at TCC. I also enjoy coupling and now I am finding more ways to share my blessing by donating the majority of my stockpile. I have never been on a mission trip. I am hoping that this will be the first of many to come.
