As associate pastor, I partner in ministry with the senior pastor to embody and communicate our mission at Christ Church. I am responsible for leading and engaging the congregation in what it looks like to be a disciple of Jesus Christ through ministries of care, teaching, preaching, and service in our local and greater communities. I provide primary oversight for our ministries that seek to provide pastoral care for our church community along with the partnerships we have as we seek to be a community in mission to the neighborhood and world around us.
I am a native of Virginia Beach where I grew up with my parents (Mike and Lisa), my younger sister (Emily), and my golden doodle (Zeke). I went to the University of Virginia (Wahoo Wah!) for my undergraduate degrees in religious studies and French. I most recently have completed my Masters of Divinity from Duke Divinity School in May and I am a commissioned elder in the Virginia Conference UMC.
