Laura Burke

B.A in Communications & Missions

Laura has a background in cross-cultural ministry- working in the inner cities of East St. Louis, and Chicago, as well as most recently leading a non-profit ministry on the Route One corridor with mostly Spanish-speaking families. She has a B.A. in Communications and Missions from Evangel University, and competed on the University’s Forensics team.
