Please describe your participation in the life of your congregation, the diocese, and the larger community
I currently serve as the rector of St. George’s, and have been doing so for over twelve years. During this time St. George’s has been a stable and fruitful parish. I have been a clergy residency supervisor (2016-2019) and currently serve on the Mission Share Task Force (since 2018). I have sponsored numerous convention resolutions and projects all designed to benefit congregational renewal, revitalization, and new plants.
Why do you feel God is calling you to serve in this position?
I believe my time serving in the diocese and my experience leading a congregation lends well to serving on the Standing Committee, especially during a time of bishop transition. I am passionate about congregational renewal and believe I have a lot of offer the people, parishes, and programs of Southern Ohio. I believe our next bishop will need the perspective of long-tenured, active clergy, and will benefit from working with a Standing Committee which has representation of clergy from the Dayton area.
