Where did you grow up and how did you make your way to Edna?
I grew up in San Antonio and as an itinerant UM pastor I go where the Bishop sends me.
When did you start at First UMC, Edna?
I started here in July 2018.
What do you enjoy most about your position?
I enjoy being used by God to make a difference in the lives of others as they are being transformed, reach their potential, grasp the love God has for them, and more.
What first interested you in the ministry?
Bible study in college. I thought how wonderful it would be if I could spend my days studying the Bible and sharing what I learned. As a pastor I do a whole lot more than that, but you have to start somewhere and this is where God started with me.
What degrees do you have?
. Master of Divinity, Perkins School of Theology (SMU, Dallas)
. Bachelor’s of Science in Psychology, Texas A&M College Station.
What is your former work experience?
I’ve been under appointment since 2007. Before that, I was a student at Perkins School of Theology (SMU) and Texas A&M. During school, I worked part-time jobs, and summers at Summer Camp.
What is your ministerial experience?
. University UMC, Austin (2007-2008)
. First UMC, Seadrift & First UMC, Austwell (2008-2011)
. Ingleside UMC, Ingleside (2011-2015)
. First UMC, Port Lavaca (2015-2018)
. First UMC, Edna (2018-Present)
