All Saints, New Albany
Please reflect on your participation in the life of your congregation, the diocese, and the larger community:
As a bi-vocational priest having a foot in the secular work as a compliance officer at a financial institution and a foot in the ecclesiastical world serving the diocese as a supply priest and hanging my vestments at All Saints I find myself crossing my feet often! Giving financial advice to a congregation and conducting pastoral care in my work office has proven time and time again the truth behind the words in the giving of peace in the Byzantine Divine Liturgy, “Christ is among us. He is and always will be!”
Why do you feel God is calling you to serve in this position?
I do not believe in chance encounters but rather that the Holy Spirit guides our actions and interactions. So given my financial services background and ecclesiastical knowledge I believe that the Holy Spirit is calling me into this role to put my feeble gifts in service of the church.
