In our diocese, I exercise my gifts of leadership, formation, and governance not only as a rector, but also as a convener of the Harriet Tubman Regional Ministry Network, the Vice-Chair of the Board of the House of the Good Shepherd, a mentor for Feed My Sheep, and as a consultant for leadership development.
At the Churchwide level, I am a member of the Executive Council of the Episcopal Church, a member of the Joint Standing Committee on Finance, a member of the Conant Grant Committee, and have published books and articles on leadership and Christian formation including: Expectant: Advent Meditations (2019), “Leadership, the Canons, and the Incarnation,” houseofdeputies.org, (2018), Preparing for Baptism in the Episcopal Church (2015)
Having served our Diocese as a deputy in 2022, I would like to continue to use my gifts and skills as a deputy to the 81st General Convention in 2024. I bring leadership, vision, an understanding of the polity of the Episcopal Church, and a conviction that grounding the work and ministry of the church in the love of Christ can transform lives. I believe we are all called to support one another in mission and ministry as we build relationships that nurture Christian discipleship and bring the love of Christ into our communities and the world around us. I value strengthening our bonds with the larger church, collaborating to powerfully proclaim Christ’s love, and sharing our gifts as a diocese with our siblings across the Episcopal Church. I would be honored to serve.
