Deacon
Church
Rising Sun Christian Community
Location
Albuquerque, NM
Bio
Having loved the Holy Father and His Son Jesus Christ since a young age, I didn't know what it meant to truly allow Jesus to be Lord of my life until I was baptized in His name at 31 years of age. Having walked with Him these last two decades has allowed me to grow spiritually and develop in ways that I could never have imagined for myself. I am currently in formation to become a Deacon and hope to be ordained in early 2018. My career goal is to be a Chaplain in order to provide spiritual comfort and guidance to hospital/hospice patients and their caregivers. Should the Lord will that I provide spiritual guidance to women in prison, I will gladly go there as well.

Title
Director of EACA Outreach Ministries, North Texas
Church
St. Thomas Church
Location
Dallas, Texas
Bio
I grew up in Texas, leaving for a year when we lived in Morocco while my father taught at the University of Rabat. A cradle Episcopalian, I put off the call to ordained ministry and joined the U. S. Navy following graduation from the University of North Texas. I served for 31 years as an active duty Naval Officer and six years as a senior civilian. Throughout the 37 years that I served as a military leader and mentor, I sought to act as a responsible steward to those I led and served. The lesson of serving Christ in all persons is a commitment that is both consistent with my baptismal covenant and with my oath to my country. The call remained, and the return to Dallas in 2013 allowed me to resume a call that had been deferred for over 40 years. Attending the Episcopal diocese of Dallas Stanton Center for three years, and Perkins School of Theology at SMU, aided in my formation. Ministries here in Dallas are focused on the Homeless and Hungry, and I work with The Gathering and The Bridge as well as serving at St Thomas.
