Welcome

January 1, 2022 will be the first day of my new appointment as pastor of Grace United Methodist Church in Geneseo, IL.  Due to the retirement of both pastors there, I will serve as an interim until June 30, 2022.  There are two types of interim pastorates:  caretaker and transitional.  The first focuses on care and restoration, the second on initiating changes.  My work is of the transition type.  You can read an article I wrote on transitional interim ministry if you click here.

Welcome to my website.  It is the repository of both my work (papers, sermons, projects…) and personal archives (photos, recipes, etc.), a work in progress.
