Why Mentoring?I pastor in an urban context and work with people from all backgrounds including the LGBTQ+ community. My heart is to help pastors navigate the challenges in the church and beyond in how to provide safe spaces in the church community for people to worship and feel a part of the Family of God. I love to be a listening ear, a prayerful presence and to encourage people in their journeys as they seek to follow Christ and minister in creative and unique ways. I love the church, ministry, pastors who are trying to "figure things out" and want to use my talents and abilities to help in any way I can. My ministry experience is unique and I want to be available to those who may not have a place to go to talk about the unique or navigate the unique. I've also served in Creative Access Areas and bring perspective in how to minister in those settings.
