I have always felt a calling to serve the body as a “behind the scenes” leader. I have been a member of the Church Council both here and at my previous Church. I have served alongside several different Pastors over the years and believe I can bring a distinct point of view to the Elder Team. My Father-in-law was a Pastor and I experienced firsthand the toll this position can take on an individual, and have seen and learned how the right kind of leadership support can positively assist the Lead Pastor and thusly the whole body. My leadership style and communication goal is to listen and give thoughtful consideration to each issue broached, communicating my perspective in a way that is open and honest, while also being mindful of others. My prayer is that God will grant me wisdom and discernment on all matters discussed and that decisions made are Spirit-led and guided by God’s Word.
