On July 1st I will begin a new appointment as the pastor of Tonganoxie United Methodist Church.
I am thrilled to have the opportunity to return to a community that was once home (my family moved to Tonganoxie when I was 8 and I graduated from Tonganoxie High School in 1998) and to be a part of the ministry of this congregation.
Tonganoxie UMC has been holding worship services in their current location since 1869. Over the last couple of years they have been going through a visioning process and have begun to dream about how they will do ministry in the future. This video was made for charge conference this year (I couldn’t figure out how to embed it here, but encourage you to click the link and give it a watch).
I am excited to walk through life with the people of Tonganoxie in these coming years, to better come to know God with them, and to serve the community in partnership with them. This is sure to be a great adventure!
