“Ordination really is a moment of celebration for the church, a sign that signifies the many that have served to raise and support a new minister to this point, and a sign that declares that God’s work in and through us is not finished. It testifies to the work of so many raising a sheep into pastoral leadership, and to the many sheep that remain outside of this fold. To that end, I would be remiss to pas by such an opportunity to thank the many that have brought me here.”

“To St. John’s for raising me in the faith: one can never know what seeds God is sowing in Sunday School and Youth Group and Mission Trips. I’m so grateful to have grown up in such a place. My great, great, great, great grandfather was the rector here once, over 200 years ago, and to be ordained in this place is an incredible gift to me and a testament to his legacy. “
