Why are you at The Journey?
My heart has inclined towards vocational ministry for a long time. My Pastor helped me discern a "late in life calling" and a friend helped me understand my role as one called to "live for others." I am thankful for our church and the honor I have to serve in a pastoral role.
What do you love about Southern Illinois?
From the first day I arrived in Southern Illinois to serve, as interim Pastor, my heart has been with the people of Southern Illinois. I love the relational warmth and sincerity of the people. We have not only a new calling and a new assignment, we have new friendships and are blessed to be part of this new community. And yes, the rich history of Southern Illinois is intriguing and endearing.
