After his wife, Julie, and he went through the Anglican Catechism and were Confirmed he started to hear God’s call for a great sacrifice of service. Through the church discernment process over several years, he was finally ordained a Deacon in the Anglican Church in January of 2021.
He serves our congregation in many ways. He works alongside Father Carl Eyberg to choose the music for each service. He then serves with our amazing music ministry for each service to lead us in Worship. He also works with our Adults and Youth in leading Catechism and other Christian Education classes. Throughout the year he with Father Carl visit members of our Parish to minister to and take communion. He works each week to make sure our church buildings are clean and ready for our Worship and activities.
