Briefly describe your primary responsibilities/duties at Third:

Motivating and mobilizing our congregation in personal missional engagement both locally and globally through short-term missions, prayer, missionary care, sharing the gospel with internationals and local serving opportunities. Conceive of and plan for events that promote vision and connectivity with God’s local/global mission and connection with the global church.

What is your favorite book(s)?

The book that most challenged me recently was Half the Sky by Nicholas Kristoff and Sheryl WuDunn. The book I most enjoyed, Western Christians in Global Mission by Paul Borthwick. The books I read for fun, anything from the Mrs. Pollifax, Agatha Raisin or the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency series. 

What is your favorite thing about Richmond?

I am a California transplant—please invite me to do new and fun adventures! I love the rolling hills, the green (everywhere!), brick homes, two-lane roads, fall foliage and ethnic diversity. 

What do you like to do in your free time?

I love to take long walks, spoil my old grey cat named Mordecai, take pictures, decorate, entertain, I’m a big Apple products fan, watch old movies and shop for bargains. 

Why are you excited to be a part of Third Church?

Vibrant preaching, rich worship, a caring congregation with the gift of hospitality and a commitment to local/global mission that is commendable.
