REV | DOC | HOLY MISCHIEF MAKER
I was called to ministry in 1998 while on a church van travelling into Atlanta. I ran from this call for many years but finally accepted that I was on the path toward ordination. I went to seminary and was commissioned in 2005. In 2006 I was starting a church with my colleague Allan when he suddenly passed away one week before our launch service. Allan had a special way of making people feel like they were having fun while also making life meaningful. After many years of healing and soul searching, I discovered the special sauce that makes life both fun and meaningful. I discovered #HolyMischief.
I’m a renegade UMC Pastor about to start on a new adventure as the Lead Pastor of Trinity United Methodist Church in Cartersville, Ga! Cartersville is Georgia's "Museum City" located near Lake Allatoona and on the Etowah River. We are looking forward to seeing how God is at work in the community and getting into #HolyMischief with the amazing people at Trinity.
My doctoral research on Growth Mindset in Transformation Leadership shows how an organization's or an individual's mindset can be a catalyst for growth and success.
I'm a professional Holy Mischief Maker helping others to engage in the mysterious disruption of love in action. It is my deepest desire to collaborate with others to become all that God created and calls us to be while we transform the world. I speak at church, retreats, plan pop up events, and conspire with others in innovative ways.
