I minister with the clergy, laity and congregations of our diocese to cultivate and grow dynamic, healthy, invitational congregations and ministries that are relevant to their contexts and deeply rooted in Jesus. Before ordination, I had a career as a Conflict Resolution trainer and consultant. In addition to ministering in parishes of various sizes, I served the diocese as a District Dean, member of the Diocesan Board, creator and coordinator of the Lay Preaching Program, and chair of the Bishop Search Committee. My passions in ministry include: empowering lay ministry, supporting nontraditional paths to ordination, conflict resolution, facilitation, preaching, hearing people's stories, & creative, collaborative ministry. Steeped in prayer and rooted in relationship with God and God's people, I follow Jesus with passion, humility & joy. I seek to serve God through leading with integrity, creativity, and humor as I listen and learn with curiosity, openness and courage.
