Here is a short bio of Natasha Tunnicliffe
I grew up in church; my family was involved in ministry and church life throughout my childhood.
At 18, I moved across the world to Rwanda for a year-long internship with a missions organization. During my time in Rwanda and throughout my early adult years, my relationship with God continued to grow, and I became solely focused on knowing the Lord more deeply and facilitating others' encounters with Him.
Upon returning from Rwanda, I entered full-time ministry and the world of Pastoring. I received my Bachelors Degree in Pastoral Leadership, while working as a Youth Pastor at a church plant (Pneuma Church/Life Church) and continued from there to become the Associate Pastor at Cedar Park Church. It has truly been the joy of my life to serve people and help connect and lead others towards the Lord. I've pastored in various capacities, including kids, youth, young adults, and worship.
After a decade of pastoring, I sensed God calling me into a season of rest and new vision. I ventured to Redding, California, to attend a ministry school at a church called Bethel. My time at Bethel was incredibly refreshing, it led to healing, personal renewal, and a new found passion for the Lord and ministry.
As my time in ministry school concluded, I felt a tug on my pastoral heart once again. I continue to approach the potential next steps back into ministry with an open hand, allowing God to guide me. He is trustworthy! I am genuinely excited about a new season of pastoring, with new vision for the future and the strength of this last season. I am ready to embrace the journey ahead.
