Holly and I moved here in July 2019, after I served for two years as pastor at Plankinton and White Lake United Methodist Churches. I have come to the ministry as a second career, having been a life long educator and administrator at colleges and universities in Iowa, South and North Dakota, and Wisconsin.
My call to the ministry was a long and gradual process, but now there is no doubt that ministry is where God wants me to be. I am passionate about music ministry, youth and children's ministry, young adult and ministry for older adults, and serving those in need in our community, region and the world.
I am also a pastor who believes that together, through prayer and following what is revealed, we can and will become more relevant for today's society by following the Holy Spirit. This involves making improvements (while never changing the principles we believe in) to our worship, programs, outreach, and christian education.
The Madison United Methodist Church is an active and passionate faith community, and we invite you to be part of it. God's blessings on all of you!
