Meet Our Staff: Sarah Shaw Ojeda

Please meet Sarah! She’s a new addition to Lighthouse’s staff and she’ll be serving as a biblical counseling intern. Learn a little bit about her through these questions and answers, then give her a warm welcome!

 Tell us a little bit about yourself!

My name is Sarah Shaw Ojeda. I am currently working on my M.Div at Cedarville University in Ohio (I have one more year left!!). I am from India. I am also brand new to Lighthouse and am so glad to be here!

What are your hobbies and interests? What do you do in your free time?

I enjoy making and drinking coffee! I also love going to coffee shops. I like learning about different countries and cultures. Also super random, but I really like learning about and using fountain pens. In my free time, if I am not at a coffee shop, I’d probably be hanging out with friends or watching a movie 🙂

As you may know by now, the Lighthouse staff loves food. What are your favorite foods?

I absolutely LOVE trying food from different places! My all-time favorite cuisine would be North Indian, though, especially a good chicken biryani (a traditional Indian rice-based dish)

Are there any interesting facts we should know about you?

An interesting fact about me is that I am half Colombian, but I speak very little Spanish!

How has your time in the church office been? What are you looking forward to?

My time in the church office has been a sweet blessing and very encouraging. I love working with the other interns and learning from Pastor Tim and Mei! It has also been lovely getting to know the Lighthouse staff. They’re pretty incredible 🙂

What will your role be on staff at Lighthouse?

My role on staff would be serving in counseling ministries!

In what ways are you looking forward to doing ministry at Lighthouse?

Apart from serving in counseling ministries, I am really looking forward to helping out with Sunday School, Spectrum, and attending Praxis!

How can we, as your church family, be praying for you?

I would love prayer for my time serving here this summer. Specifically, I would be able to learn a lot about biblical care and counseling in the church and its application for ministry. And that I would grow this summer in my walk with the Lord through my time in the Word and what I learn during my time here.
