Greatest Achievement

I think my greatest achievement is my position as head minister of Springfield Presbyterian Church in Sykesville, Md. I have the wonderful opportunity to combine my love of art and design and my knowledge of theology to make church more accessible to visual learners.

In Five Years...

If the path is clear, I will continue as the head pastor at Springfield Presbyterian Church, and life will keep getting better. I hope to get more involved on a national level in the graphic design communications of the Presbyterian Church and to encourage art as a spiritual practice.

I have the wonderful opportunity to combine my love of art and design and my knowledge of theology to make church more accessible to visual learners.
