Together in Love and Faith

Meet the Pastor

 
 
 
 
 
 Throughout my life, I have experienced a number of transitions and changes. And, while all of them brought difficulty and challenges, I can look back and see that God used each of them to form and shape me in ways I could have never expected. When I moved from my small-town West Virginia home to begin college at Asbury University, I changed and grew by leaps and bounds. When I entered seminary at Asbury Theological Seminary, that change and growth continued. As I transitioned into a new season of life, my faith grew and became my own. When I moved on from Asbury to Evansville, Indiana, I can remember stepping into a full-time ministry position with everything changing: a new house, a new schedule, a new group of friends and co-workers, and new policies and procedures to learn. By the way, I have left the University of Evansville still having not learned them all! Over time, the newness became normal. But grace abounded. Newness is all around us even now. I will have new names to learn, new stories to hear, a new schedule, new policies and procedures while processing the reality of leaving names and stories behind. And still, grace continues to abound.
