I have felt the desire to do ministry since I was a child, and over the last several years I've followed that call in various ways. During my time as an undergraduate student at Union, I studied Biblical Languages during the year and did ministry each summer.
When I went to Wheaton College to begin a masters program in Biblical Exegesis, I began attending an ACNA church and started a year-long period of transition into the Anglican faith.
Last summer I was confirmed and began interning with the Greenhouse Movement, an ACNA church planting organization based in Chicago. After graduating from Wheaton this May, I have begun my first long-term ministry position with Greenhouse, where I will serve as the spiritual formation coordinator for a parish of seven young Anglican church plants in Chicago, including the one where I have interned this last year.
For this role within the Redeemer Parish of Chicago, I will have the opportunity to help people grow in their understanding of God, build thriving Christian relationships, begin healing from spiritual wounds, find victory over personal sin patterns, and develop a dynamic loving relationship with the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. So, in sum, I get to help guide people through the holistic, life-long process of becoming the new creatures God intends them to be.
I will be raising support for my work with Greenhouse over the next month or two, and then at regular intervals over the upcoming years. I loved worshipping with you at All Saints each Sunday while I was raising support for a few weeks in Jackson! I'm hoping to come through town again for a few days this December, and would love to meet with any of you who are interested in hearing more about my work. If you'd like to connect with me then, please email me here.
May the blessing of God Almighty, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, be with you and remain with you always.
