Grace Finley

Grace Finley

High School Resident

My name is Grace Ann Finley and I grew up in Bryant, AR. In my pursuit of a degree in Business Administration - Management, I had the privilege of attending Ouachita Baptist University in Arkadelphia, AR. The connections I made at OBU allowed me the opportunity to serve as a summer high school intern at my home church. Then, for 3 summers the Lord graciously placed me at Kanakuk Kamps as a high school camp counselor and photo manager. Following college graduation, I moved to Branson, MO to attend a biblical training program called the Kanakuk Institute. Because of the class credits I received there, I’m now slowly chipping away at my MBA!

I’m so excited for this opportunity to serve you by pouring into your children’s lives. I remember high school as a time of great challenge and growth. My prayer is that the Lord would use me as a positive voice in their life, as they navigate these formative years.
