Greetings! I’m delighted to be back on staff at Christ Church and am thrilled to have the opportunity to serve this wonderful parish once again!
As an Assistant Priest here at Christ Church, I will be available for pastoral conversations or a visit. I will be reaching out to those on the parish Pastoral Care List, but please contact me directly if you are in need of pastoral care.
I am also working with parishioners to develop and lead Way of Faith: an exciting opportunity for each of us to deepen our relationship with God, rather than just learning about God. Please contact me if you would like to learn more about this rich and wonderful offering.
As some of you may remember, I served here as Interim Assistant from June 2013 through May 2014. I’ve been active in the Episcopal Church for much of my life, serving parishes and the diocese as a lay leader, Sunday School teacher, and choir member for more years than I care to count with a particular focus on adult Christian formation, liturgical planning, teaching, and stewardship. Since ordination in 2004, I’ve added pastoral care, preaching, and presiding at the Eucharist to my areas of ministry. Additionally, until I retired in 2012, I was also a history professor at Portland State.
Yours in Christ,
