I am deeply rooted in Jesus Christ. I believe that the Spirit is present and at work in our lives/communities/world. I believe that the word of God and the gospel message are still relevant and good news for our world in need. As pastor of community life, I am committed to helping create spaces where others are able to more fully enter into their own journeys and to give voice to all that they are experiencing, while also helping individuals/couples name where God is at work in their midst. Within this role I am excited to work at spiritual formation with adults so that we can engage in lifelong learning and growth as disciples of Jesus Christ. I desire to walk with individuals/couples/families during times of grief and pain, celebration and joy, as well as during the everyday ordinary moments of life. I am a graduate of Bluffton University (Bachelor of Arts in Religion) and Eastern Mennonite Seminary (Master of Divinity). My life is joyfully filled with my husband Luke and our four children.
