Missy Carfield was raised in Indiana but called Kentucky and Michigan home before enthusiastically responding to God’s prompt to move to Florida in 2002. Though a graduate of Ball State University (’92) and Asbury Theological Seminary (’97), she still has those dreams about heading to a final for the course she forgot to attend all semester. Missy has been pouring into the lives of young people and their families through the local church since 1994. While an experienced speaker at camps and conferences, including NYWC (National Youth Workers Convention), her deepest passion is satisfied seeing youth, volunteers and families connected to Christ, the church and the world. Enjoying football, cooking, reading, traveling, and anything with a story, Missy lives in Venice, FL with her husband Jim, their two children: Gavin, Finley and the family canine, Colby Jack.
