The Theology of My Ministry

For the past 30+ years I have rededicated myself to a Christ-filled life. I am spirit-led and Christ-centered. As I continue to grow I am amazed at what God is doing in my life. I have a heart for the poor and unchurched, and I am missional minded. For the past 12 years I have discovered that my theology, even though I was raised Lutheran, has always been Wesleyan. I am a true Methodist. From the beliefs of the three types of grace, to the Wesleyan Quadrilateral interpretation of the Bible. It has been an honor and a privilege to serve in the Great Plains Conference. I am at a stage in life where change is inevitable. I am trusting God completely with my future and doors continue to open and I feel a calling to be a part of the Florida Conference. My grandmother was from Florida and would take me to visit relatives when I was young. She always wanted to return there but never made it. There has always been a yearning for me to complete something she couldn’t. I have no family in Kansas anymore and I feel that I am at the end of a wonderful chapter of my life and I’m ready to help teach and lead people to Jesus Christ in your area. Thanks for considering me and God bless.
