I have served this diocese in ordained ministry since 1983, mostly as an Interim Rector or Priest-in-Charge. I am currently the long-term supply priest at Grace Church in Cincinnati. Since we are a small congregation this includes a bit of everything: preacher, teacher, pastor, yard work, building maintenance, etc.
During this time I have also served on the Seven Hills Neighborhood Houses Board, Episcopal Retirement Services Board and committees, as well as the Diocesan Commissions on Liturgy and Music and Congregational Life.
I believe God called me through the person who first invited me to offer my name as a Trustee of the Church Foundation. I am running for another term because I care deeply about the spiritual and financial well being of our congregations in this diocese; with special affection for the smaller ones who struggle to maintain their buildings so that they can keep on serving the communities where they are.
