Christ Church Cathedral, Cincinnati

Please reflect on your participation in the life of your congregation, the diocese, and the larger community:

At Christ Church Cathedral, I have been blessed to serve as Senior Warden for two terms; as a member of the vestry for two terms; as chair of the Community Grants Committee; as a key volunteer at the “5000 Club” homeless dinner; and as a member of the Capital Campaign Committee. For the diocese, I have worked on the “Co Creating the Cathedral” Task Force and am currently serving an appointment for an unexpired term on the Standing Committee.

Why do you feel God is calling you to serve in this position?

When I was fortunate enough to serve on the “Co Creating the Cathedral” Task Force, I got to know various clergy and laity throughout the DSO. I found the experience rich and rewarding. I also learned of the struggles that some of these churches are facing and feel as though God is calling me to serve on the Standing Committee so that all of our member churches know that the lines of communication are open and know the presence of people who care about their missions.
