Why am I in ministry?
Growing up we were what I call part-time Christians. We only went to church on holidays and sporadically throughout
the year. The church we attended was Cherry Hill UMC, so I grew up with experiences in the United Methodist Church
When I was 29 years old, I started attending church, St. Johns's UMC, on a more regular
basis. I began to serve the church in multiple facets and was growing in Christ. I believe this was God's way of preparing
me for His call to ministry. It wasn't until I was 45 years old that I actually answered God's call to ministry in a pastoral
As I began to follow and grow in Christ, I have noticed the transformation
as one of His disciples. I am not the same person I once was. There have been healings, answered prayers, blessings, peace,
joy and love; I know all this has come from my conversations and encounters with Christ. I know first-hand the difference
He can make in my life and I am excited to share with all - to make disciples of Jesus Christ, to share the good news, to
care for the lost and the hopeless, and to care for, encourage and support those who have chosen to follow Jesus.
