I started attending All Souls in 2016 and fell in love with the people and theology. By 2017, I was starting to serve in various ways. I am honored and humbled to be considered for the MSC for this significant time in our journey together. Over the past 5 years, I have been a choir member, Freedom School helper, Pledge Drive Chair, and Chalice Circle facilitator. Currently, I am serving on the Program Council, and had previous roles with the DIT, Faith in Indiana, Fall Retreat, Rev. Anastassia’s Sabbatical and “Goodbye” teams, and 2 hiring teams (Kayla and Sarah Gettie).Before All Souls, I was a long-time member of several area American Baptist Churches (ABC). I served on their central Indiana Region Board and search teams for their Interim Executive Minister and called Executive Minister. At local ABC churches, I had a variety of roles including a couple of search teams.I was a Pastor’s spouse for several years prior to my divorce in 2017. We had 4 children together; 2 that live in Indy and 2 in NC and CA. Three of my four grandchildren live in Indy and the fourth is in Los Angeles. I am retired but stay active as a volunteer and grandpa. I enjoy golfing, reading, hiking, and travelling.
