Kayla Long

Next Gen Assistant

Bio: I am a loved, chosen, daughter of God and a wife to the most generous heart you will ever meet, Trevor. We have two labrador retrievers and spend a lot of time camping in state parks around Michigan. I love the sanctuary of the outdoors and celebrating the mystery of God. There is just something so unexplainable about His presence sometimes and I like sitting in those moments. A big strength of mine is encouragement. I still LOVE sending stale mail. I regularly send my nieces and nephews little surprises that way and anxiously wait for their reactions every time!!

Where did you grow up? Right Here in Battle Creek, MI

How do you like your coffee? Oh man...seasonally from Starbucks. (I am a basic white girl..and a sucker for their pumpkin spice and peppermint mocha lattes). But basically if it has a lot of creamer, flavor, and a girlish/corny name-I am all about it.

What's your favorite 1am Snack? A spoonful of frosting. But if that's not on hand - Cereal.

What is your current Netflix Binge? New Girl

Do you know your personality type? I am a type 9

What is your favorite Battle Creek Lunch Spot? San Fran's

What is the best part of working at Woodland? Gosh, it's hard to narrow that down to one thing. I mean, truly it felt like Home the first day I started attending church here, and my first day on staff was no different. I think what I love most is just that it's real. The hunger of each person, wanting more of Jesus, is REAL. The fact that all of us have different talents and different struggles is also just as real and the longer I am here, the more I keep discovering that these people genuinely want you to win and succeed. It's a beautiful thing to be a part of!
