Sharing this website with you is a great joy as it is a portfolio of my life in ministry and my testimony of how I experience God's call for my life.  More so, this is a celebration of the wonderful congregations, organizations, and individuals who have shaped me and inspired me.

I am called to pastor UCC congregations.  Here is a little overview of some of my ministry experience.  For my full profile based on the UCC Marks of Ministry please use the website menu to view the page for each Mark.
