Our Volunteers

Molly Sanford
hales from Hickory, North Carolina but has lived in numerous cities and towns including Asheville, NC, Chicago and Boone, NC since then. Molly pursued a degree in Psychology and minored in sociology at the University of North Carolina Asheville and graduated in 2012. Since then, Molly completed a year of volunteer service at Franciscan Outreach in Chicago working at a soup kitchen full-time and living in community with 12 other young adults. Molly had the opportunity to cultivate her passion for food justice from urban farming, teaching a cooking and gardening class for second and third graders at a social justice school in Chicago, working at Whole Foods, to the experience derived from the soup kitchen. This led Molly to seek a master's program at Wayne State in business and industry anthropology to hopefully help alleviate food issues through the means of corporate social responsibility, where she will begin part-time in the Fall. Simultaneously, Molly's heart, after being separated from intentional community life/social justice life since leaving Chicago, is excited to harvest strong bonds with the other house members and the guests of St. Christine Christian Services and overall Christ the King Parish community. On a less serious note, Molly loves singing/playing ukulele​, laughing, cooking/baking, reading, playing board games and riding her road bike in her free time!

Kyle VanOverbeke
is from a small town in central Minnesota. He graduated from St. Cloud State University in 2016 with a degree in Elementary Education, completing part of his student teaching experience at an inner-city school in Houston, Texas. He truly enjoys building relationships with the students he works with, striving to empower them to succeed both in and beyond the classroom. At CKSC, he will teach 4th grade at Christ the King School, where his goal for the year is to, through service and community, grow closer to Jesus, our Lord and Savior.
