I am passionate about helping people find a way to impact their world and strengthen their families— whatever that family might look like.
I believe that Scripture is powerful and vast, and requires care and interpretation.
I believe that all people are equal in the eyes of God, regardless of the color of their skin, gender identity or sexual orientation, and all are welcome to the love of God without judgement.
My job is to carry the vision, lead worship, be there for you in crisis, lead using my experience and expertise, stay out of the way when God and the people are at work, and help bring out the gifts God has given you.
