I am also honored to serve as Senior Chaplain of The Carroll County Sheriff’s Department. Volunteer Chaplain for Twin County Regional Hospital, and Chaplain for Twin County Hospice. I am an Ordained Elder in The United Methodist Church as well at The International Fellowship of Chaplains.
I have a Passion to see hurting people come to know Jesus Christ. I believe that we as Christians have to demonstrate God’s Love to the world, rather than just telling them they are loved. I believe that love is shown through my service to the people of my community through the local church, through volunteer service, and interaction with my community..
