Courtney was born and raised in sunny Southern California, where she loved going to Disneyland, the beach, and TV show tapings. She went to Biola University (which was coincidentally just 10 miles from Disneyland!) and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication Studies and a minor in Biblical Studies. While coaching the Speech and Debate Team at Biola, she began to discover her passion for apologetics and studying the Bible more deeply. So, in order to continue her education, she went to Talbot Theological Seminary and received a Master’s in Christian Apologetics. In 2019, she married her husband Will, and in 2022, they bought their first house and moved to Ooltewah, Tennessee. They immediately began attending ChristWay, getting plugged into their new community through LifeGroups, and then serving in other ministries. Courtney has a passion for helping others love the Word of God and know what they believe and why they believe it. She joined the staff in September 2023 and is excited to be part of the ChristWay team and help others become disciples who make disciples!
