I joined First Presbyterian Church in 1979. I'm married to Shannon and mother to Claire and Nate who both live and work in Kansas City. I am currently serving my fourth term as a deacon. I have served on Stewardship and Nominating committees. I have taught Sunday School and Bible School. A Presbyterian all my life, I prayerfully considered the challenges of the Pastor Nominating Committee (PNC). Looking torward this PNC with dedication, trepidation, and excitement.
