How did you connect to St. Marcus?

I was assigned to St. Marcus as Pastor in 1980.

What do you love about what you do?

I love St. Marcus' diversity, energy, constant change, amazing worship music, passion for Christian education, and dedication to the Word.

If you had a Bible passage/quote for your life and ministry what would it be?

"Though I am free and belong to no one, I make myself a slave to everyone, to win as many as possible. I have become all things to all, so that by all possible means I might save some. I do this all for the gospel, that I may share in its blessings." -I Corinthians 9:19-23
