Who am I?

I am an ordained deacon in the Virginia Conference of the United Methodist Church, currently serving as the Associate Minister of Youth and Education at Peakland United Methodist in Lynchburg. I have an Associate’s in Early Childhood Development from J. Sergeant Reynolds Community College, a Bachelor’s in Religious Studies from Randolph-Macon College, and a Master’s in Christian Education from Union Theological Seminary and Presbyterian School of Christian Education. I live in Lynchburg with my wife Megan, our greyhound Roux, and our daughter, Baby J.

What you will find here . . . . . 

I write about a wide variety of things: movies, books, ministry, comic books, being a dad, and other observations of seeking God in holy and unexpected places. The foundation of my faith and theology is Love God and Love Each Other.  For almost 20 years, I have built on that foundation as I have worked in churches with children  and youth ministries, where I value connecting the church to the world through service and mission.
