Sunday Worship 8:45 and 10:00 AM
My greatest passion in ministry is helping people deepen their relationship with God. This often happens through a willingness to wrestle with the big questions of life, questions such as:
Why is there so much suffering?
What does it mean to live a good life?
What happens after we die?
How do I figure out what God wants me to do with my life?
Church should be the place where we get to ask those tough questions in worship and in the classroom and in conversations. At the same time, church is the place where we get to bathe in the glorious good news that we are loved and claimed by God! My hope is that the church can be a place where members and visitors can experience the presence of God and talk about those things that are most important to them.
My other great passion in ministry is serving God’s people in direct and practical ways. What does it look like to care for the poor and the sick and those in need? Churches are at their best when they provide ways for folks to translate their compassion into practical ways to help those in need in their communities.
A life-long Presbyterian, I grew up in Dayton, Ohio, and attended Princeton University in Princeton, New Jersey. Following graduation, a Marshall scholarship sent me to Northern Ireland where I received a Masters of Social Sciences in Irish Political Studies from Queen’s University of Belfast. Upon returning to the United States, I earned a Masters of Divinity from Union Theological Seminary in New York City.
I served as associate pastor at Central Presbyterian Church in Denver, Colorado, and senior pastor and head of staff at Westminster Presbyterian Church in Des Moines, Iowa before coming to Broad Street.
