Belief Statement or Reason to Serve:

Prior to joining Messiah in 2012, I served as an elder and vice-president of another congregation.  The focus of my efforts at this congregation were on small group ministry and Bible study.  I am also passionate about Lutheran education, having served as a called social studies and theology teacher at Lincoln Lutheran MS/HS since 1995.  Messiah has strong small group ministry and Bible study programs for members inside the church, and is increasingly devoted to sharing of the Gospel outside of the walls of the church and school.  In each of these areas (education, Bible study, ministry and missions) we have significant opportunity to be a blessing to our community, especially as we anticipate housing development and growth around our campus.  As a current LLB member, I would continue to encourage the LLB to collaborate with and encourage the various Messiah ministries and leadership teams to be even more capable and bold in living out our calling to love God and love others.

Member at Messiah since 2012.
