It is an exciting time: a New Year and journey. I am delighted to be entering the exciting work of interim ministry with Weaverville UMC. Our time together will be a dynamic and rich time of transition. Intentional interim ministry is a covenant relationship with a congregation where I promise to listen, reflect, lead, pastor, coach, and guide to move us together finding God’s leading and emerging ministries.
This process includes joining a given body of Christ, analyzing the organization, discerning responsibility and establishing priorities, connecting the congregation and the denomination, and evaluating and adjusting to a new future.
I look forward to getting to know the wonderful people and ministries within and outside Weaverville United Methodist Church as we serve God and one another.
