Jesus said, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength."

We worship a God of passionate love, and he calls for our passionate response.

I am passionate about God. Ever since I was a little girl, I have found comfort and hope in the God who knew my name, the Savior who called me his own, and the Spirit who guided my steps.

I am passionate about Christ's church - a gathering of broken individuals who together become the forgiven people of God. What a gift it is to be a part of this community, knowing and worshiping God, sharing in authentic fellowship, proclaiming the gospel of Christ, and partnering with God in ministering to a hurting world!

I am passionate about my calling as a pastor. I believe God has called me to paint a picture for the church, enabling the church to envision and experience a world of peace, justice, mercy, and grace. I delight in inspiring and equipping others to be world-changers for the kingdom of God and in loving and encouraging the world-changers along their journey.

I am also passionate about Pullman! I was born in Pullman when my father was finishing up his PhD at WSU and I have always proudly claimed my birthplace. Pullman is a wonderfully diverse and unique city, both rural and academic, small but influential. It is a city of world-changers.

And I am now passionate about Pullman Presbyterian Church. I am thrilled at the prospect of partnering with you in seeking new and innovative ways of connecting a great diversity of people to Christ while embracing the rich heritage of Pullman Presbyterian Church. I look forward to hearing your stories, sharing your joys and burdens, and working together to make PPC all that God has called it to be.

"The place God calls you to is the place where your deep gladness and the world's deep hunger meet." -Frederick Buechner

Every year the fertile lands of the Palouse yield a harvest that feeds the world. Wheat and lentils meet the world's needs for physical nourishment. Through the university, the world's hunger for knowledge, learning, and understanding is fed. And in the person of Jesus Christ, the ultimate hunger of humanity - a relationship with God - is realized.

Pullman Presbyterian Church stands on the crossroads of the world's great needs. I feel honored and humbled to stand alongside the people of Pullman Presbyterian Church and work together through the power of the Holy Spirit to meet the deep hunger of the world.

I believe that through my life experiences and interests God has created me to minister in the community of Pullman. I am by nature a people person, and thrive on opportunities to get to know people and become part of their lives. As long as I can remember I have wanted to be a farmer, and the prospect of living in a community founded upon agriculture is truly a dream come true. I have a passion for academics and intellectual pursuits and I view life long learning as one of my greatest priorities. And most of all I love to see God work in people's lives.

As we join together on this journey of faith, I am looking forward to sharing together our triumphs, struggles, hopes, dreams, and our very lives.
