And I am your Free Range Priest.
I have been an Episcopal priest for 20 years, and I have seen the institutional church - which I love - struggle to adapt in the 21st century.
After a decade serving in congregations, and 5 years serving on a denominational leadership level, I felt called to walk alongside clergy and congregations as we find new ways of serving the church in the digital world - a world where most people no longer belong to traditional Christian congregations.
I am passionate about sharing the Good News of God's love for everyone, and I am tireless in encouraging my fellow ministers to take bold steps into the adventurous future.
