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 St. Johns's United Methodist Church
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 role.
As I began to follow and grow in
Christ, I 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.
