"I am thrilled to have felt a call to serve among Covenant Presbyterian Church, a church whose ministry I have long admired. I look forward to building relationships with the people of the church in worship, conversation and fellowship together as we witness and participate in all that God is doing in our lives at Covenant and beyond."
