Christ Church, Ironton
Please reflect on your participation in the life of your congregation, the diocese, and the larger community:
I have served as priest-in-charge at Christ Church in Ironton since 2008. In the Diocese, I have served as a Trustee of the Procter Fund, a past member of the Procter Board, the Commission on Ministry and presently serve as a member of Diocesan Council. In the Lawrence County Community, I’m a member of Rotary, a member of the Community Advisory Panel, a member of the Impact Ironton Drug prevention coalition, a member of the Lawrence County Recovery Coalition and a volunteer chaplain to the Lawrence County Common Pleas Drug Court.
Why do you feel God is calling you to serve in this position?
The Diocese of Southern Ohio has been blessed with a rich financial inheritance from faithful parishioners. I feel called to help steward these gifts for the benefit of the parishes in the Diocese. Our congregation received financial support from the Church Foundation in the past. It made a huge difference in our community of faith. I seek to serve out of gratitude.
