St. Peter’s, Gallipolis

Nominee for Diocesan Council (lay)
Please describe your participation in the life of your congregation, the diocese, and the larger community

I currently serve as the Senior Warden of St. Peter’s – Gallipolis, and previously served on Diocesan Council for two years. I am currently a board certified environmental health inspector for the Gallia County Health Department.

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

I feel called to put my name in the “hat” again to further represent the river cities and the views of a 36 year old of this Diocese. I previously ran and was elected, prior to COVID-19. When I was elected, I learned the diocese had made a mistake on the number of open seats and was a Bishop Appointee at that point. My appointment ended with departure of Bishop Thomas Breidenthal.
