For many of us, church has always been a part of our lives. For others, we're more newcomers to the faith - or at least, to organized religion. But one way or the other, something has brought us here and kept us coming. Church holds a special place in each of our hearts. For me, church was where I learned how to sing. Church was where I learned about how privileged I was and some of the ways I could care for other people. Church taught me the greatest story ever told. And Church was where I met David.
Since I came to the Shared Covenant Ministries in 2013, I have learned more than I ever imagined about how to be the lead pastor of a church. I have loved more people than I ever imagined possible and felt loved by more people than I ever thought would care about me and my family. It's been such a blessing to be a part of this community.
