If we have not had a chance to get to know one another yet, I’d like to take just a moment and tell you a little bit about myself. I grew up in a Christian home, and have been fortunate to always know Jesus and his love for me. I started working for the local church when I was just a teenager, cleaning up the building part time on the weekends. When I was a bit older I became a youth director, working at various churches for over a decade. I loved that job. I loved getting to see God at work in the lives of our youth, and getting to see them change their parts of the world by living into Jesus’ love.  

I began to feel a call to ordained ministry toward the end of my time as a youth director, and as a result I returned to school, finishing up a degree in Religion at Oklahoma City University before attending seminary at Boston University.  I served in a couple of congregations in Massachusetts as an intern pastor before graduating and returning to Oklahoma. I was appointed to First UMC in Broken Arrow when I returned, and have now been appointed to be your pastor here at Goodrich. 

I may have mentioned that I am excited to be here! I can see God at work through this community, and know that we have a significant Kingdom impact on many people’s lives, in our neighborhood, our city, our state, and around the world. I look forward to continuing to learn about the ministries that are already taking place here, and I cannot wait to see what God has in store for our future, as we go about continuing to build the Kingdom!
