Jill is our Challenge II Tutor (ages 15-17). Here is what Jill has to Say!
1. Tell me about yourself.
My name is Jill Marks. I have been married to my husband, Curtis Marks, for 24 years. We have four children: Gabriel, 19-years-old; Abigail, 18-years-old; Isaac, 16-years-old; and Micah, almost 13-years-old. As a family, we love to cut up and have fun and never take ourselves too seriously. We love board games and camping in our pop-up. We are animal people. We have 4 dogs, 6 goats, 6 chickens, and 1 bunny. We are members at Villa Rica First United Methodist Church and love our church family. My children are active in the youth group there.
2. What made you decide to apply to direct?
This was out of my comfort zone, but I was asked to consider directing during my second year with CC. I prayed about it and felt God prompting me to do it. I also recognized that this was His provision for paying my own children’s tuition.
3. What about directing brings you joy?
I always look forward to having great conversations with my students and helping them make discoveries about the topics we are learning about. I love to help students grow and mature in their understanding of God’s world. I would not be here without my faith. This is a journey that God has been leading me down. I try to approach all of the subjects that we study with an eye on the creator of it all. Here are the questions I ask myself: How would He like me to present the material? What message does God want my students to hear through our Challenge 1 studies? How would He like to reveal Himself to me and the rest of the class? I am excited about the new school year. I look forward to journeying with my new families in Challenge II.
