She directs the youth ministry at her local fellowship and regularly teaches classes on worldview and apologetics for teens and adults. She speaks at conferences, writes curricula, and trains volunteers to reach Generation Z. She and Mark co-direct the youth apologetics track for the annual Marriage Family Life Conference sponsored by American Family Radio.
Amy has an undergraduate degree in Christian ministry and a master's degree in religion from Southern Evangelical Seminary. She is pursuing a master's in theology and Christian apologetics from SES. She is s a commissioned fellow with the Colson Center for Christian Worldview and directs the Colson Fellows South Quay Cohort. She is also a graduate of Frank Turek's Cross Examined Instructor's Academy and recipient of the Frank Turek Scholarship for studies in Christian apologetics. Additionally, Amy is a chapter director for Ratio Christi College Prep, aiming to equip high school students with historical, philosophical, and scientific reasons for following Jesus Christ.
