Danielle Miller comes from the beautiful, sunny island of Barbados. She is currently the youngest serving missionary in our Field. She has been assigned as the Caribbean Field's Office Secretary and currently the Caribbean Field's NYI Coordinator. The Caribbean Field is vast and extensive. It includes all of the English, French, and Dutch Caribbean Countries.
As Field NYI Coordinator, she gives guidance to the ministry across the Field and this year, she will be working on training the District NYI Presidents. There are about 8 new District NYI Presidents and those numbers are unprecedented for new presidents at one time.

1) All the necessary finances to be able to efficiently host our retreat and presidents.
2) The travels of both the Presidents and the Facilitators
3) The time of intentional impartation of knowledge and fellowship among the Presidents
