Dear Siblings in Christ,
August 1st marked the beginning of my work with the Wisconsin Conference of the United Church of Christ. I have shared this many times and it bears saying again, nothing could have prepared me for the beauty of the land of Wisconsin. The rolling green landscape, mile after mile of corn fields, farms with grazing and resting cows, and long two-lane county roads were what greeted me. I received a gracious welcoming from clergy and church leadership as well as a supportive embrace from Conference staff and colleagues. Since arriving I have experienced a sense of peace as the vast landscape and the warmth of the people provide space to think and space to just be. I am thankful the search to fulfill my call to serve the larger church has brought me to this time and place.
The region I serve includes the Southwest Association as well as the Burlington and Waukesha Districts of the Southeast Association. These first months have been filled with informative meetings and earnest conversation with local clergy and church leadership. I invite you to give me a call or drop me an email at (608) 630-2992 or firstname.lastname@example.org . You can also schedule a time for a meeting or conversation by clicking on this link. I’d like to learn how I can support you in your ministry. I am also available to visit a Sunday worship service and for preaching engagements.
I am deeply honored to be allowed to join with you in the care and nurturing of Christ’s church.
In gratitude and service,
