I can barely remember my life before Grace Church. I have been a part of this church since the very beginning when I was 20 years old. My husband and I were married while at Grace. My four children were born into Grace and grew up here. I have been on staff for 25 years. To say that Grace has been a big part of my life is an understatement.
My family and I have poured our lives and our hearts into this place. To say that Grace has impacted my life is an understatement. Much of who I am today has been formed through the staff and people of Grace. God has met me over and over through Grace Church. To say I love Grace and the people of Grace is an understatement. The congregation of Grace is my community. The people of Hamilton County are my community. The people of central Indiana are my community. And I want nothing more than to pastor and shepherd these people - my community - inside of Grace and the community outside of Grace that so desperately need Jesus.
I want to see people of all ages - from all walks of life – from every background – of every ethnicity surrender their lives to Jesus and enter into authentic, powerful community with each other. My desire is for every single person at Grace to have deep, rich relationships with other Christ followers. My desire is for Grace Church to be a safe place for all people no matter where they are in life – no matter what questions they may have – no matter how broken they think they are. My desire is for every single person at Grace to have people in their lives that know them, love them, see them, celebrate them, and challenge them. My desire is for the kids, students, and adults of Grace to be shaped and moved into their calling and destiny by their interactions and connections with each other. My desire is for the people of Grace to be a dynamic, passionate, spirit-filled community that side by side moves into the brokenness of the world in a powerful, life-changing way. My desire is to pastor and shepherd the people of Grace.
It is an honor, a privilege and a blessing. And I know God has great things to do in and through us all. And I can’t wait to do it together!
