Pastor’s spiritual growth

                         
         
  • I am moving towards completion of the Course of Study by 2011.
  • I enjoy meeting with local clergy both Methodist & from other denominations, finding spiritual insight from them.
  • I serve on the District committee on ministry that has given me great insight on God’s call for many & the process involved.
  • I also serve as a volunteer Chaplin at Easton Hospital & with laity and other clergy bring Sunday services 2-4 times a year to local nursing homes.
