Student Ministry Director

Becky makes up the other half of Team McLaughlin. She works with her husband Will as the Student Ministry Director. She has had a passion for working and sharing Christ with teenagers since her undergraduate years at James Madison University, working as a Young Life leader. It was through this ministry that she discovered her love of working with the sometimes sassy- but always fun- high school age girls.

Originally from Montclair, Virginia, Becky grew up as the youngest of four girls. Her masculine FBI agent father grew a little softer around the edges living in a house of all those crazy women. Growing up, there was always a lot of laughter, drama, and dad escaping to the basement to watch football alone. After graduating high school, she headed down to JMU for college and majored in English with a minor in Education.

While at JMU, Becky met her (now) husband Will and became best friends with him through Young Life and their shared major. They started dating at the beginning of their 5th year as graduate students- and after that it only took 4 months for him to come to his senses and pop the question. They lived in China for their first 2 years of marriage and are brand new to Roanoke. Will & Becky recently had their first child, Liam. When she’s not hanging out with students, you’ll find Becky going for runs, hiking, finding new music, or grabbing a cup of coffee with friends.
