Mozambique Initiative: Introducing Madison Denton


Hello all! 

My name is Madi, and I’m the new Mozambique Initiative intern. I am very excited to be here! My hope over the next year is to begin building connections with some of you. The best way to get the ball rolling is to share a little bit about myself.  
I am the oldest of three girls, raised in Kansas City, Missouri. Because I was raised in KC, I thrive on small coffee shops, good music and great BBQ. I am a pretty creative person. I enjoy crafts and D.I.Y. projects a lot as well as photography. When it comes to anything athletic though, count me out. My favorite film of all time is Titanic, and I’ve watched The Office about nine times all the way through. 
I originated at the University of Missouri as a journalism major. As my freshman and sophomore years progressed, I began to feel myself being called to both international and college-age ministry. During the summer of 2016, I was able to participate in the Crossroads program through the Missouri Conference. It was then that I realized ministry was my passion, so I switched to my current major, Communications and Mass Media. Now, I am a college-age intern at Missouri United Methodist, as well as for MI, and I absolutely love it. God has provided the space and opportunity for me to explore both areas, and I am extremely eager and excited to see what 2017 holds! 
I look forward to working with Craig and the team to continue the great work being done alongside Mozambique.
