Committees: Budget/Stewardship, Missions

How are you serving at Third?

Currently I'm an active elder on Session, and serve as Chair of the Missions Committee.  I also serve on the Budget and Stewardship Committee as the Chair of the stewardship subcommittee.  I occasionally teach Sunday School.

Where do you see God moving in Third?

God is in fact moving mightily at Third Church.  With all the changes that have occurred in the last year, and those to come, He has given us a clean sheet of paper to first discern His direction for us, then create ministry opportunities to meet the needs of our congregation and others beyond our walls.

Tell us about your hobbies and family

My first "hobby" is my FIVE granddaughters!  Four of them are in Church Hill where I live, so I get to see them pretty often.  What joys they are.  I also do some woodworking and work with the youth in Church Hill to learn woodworking and entrepreneur skills.  When I have time, I also like to fly fish.

If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life what would it be?

I was tempted to list Krispy Kreme glazed donuts (hot of course!).  But I'd be so big and round that I wouldn't be able to move.  So, maybe peanut butter is a better answer...
