For the past 14 years, I have served a small congregation in central NJ, Grace Presbyterian. They are a faithful, caring community; we laugh and learn together. During my time as their pastor, I have overseen the creation of a Wellness Center and have led them to merge two churches together.
Our mission statement reads:
We believe all persons are MINISTERS: EACH AND EVERY ONE. With God’s grace, we seek to be an open and affirming congregation - one that includes all persons. We embrace differences of sexual orientation, gender, race, age, mental ability and physical ability. Together we participate in the church, seeking to know Christ, to grow in discipleship and to live the challenge every day.
My greatest joy as a pastor continues to be walking alongside individuals and groups of people as they seek to grow in their understanding of God and their understanding of themselves.
