Welcome to our website!  Our congregation includes people from a variety of backgrounds – farm, small town, suburban and city – as well as diverse theological beliefs.  I am serving as an interim pastor and am enjoying my time at Alexandria United Methodist Church immensely.  Our members participate actively in the worship, fellowship, educational, and outreach life of our church.  Our staff  members are creative, energetic, capable, and care deeply about our church and its members.

 

I am irresistibly drawn to the intellectual coherence, theological integrity, and spiritual depth of Christian faith, in its enduring expression across two thousand years.  I appreciate the unique position churches occupy in our society, where multiple generations of people gather, across our respective life spans, sharing the main passages of life with each other, all in the context of God’s gracious love and mercy in Jesus Christ.

  

Aside from one year of teaching high school and two years of writing software for Honeywell after college and before attending seminary, I have been a pastor all my adult life.  I continue to find joy and satisfaction each day in this calling, even in the midst of the complexities and challenges that churches experience.  I have two grown sons and six grandchildren and spend as much of my spare time as possible outdoors hiking, bicycling, running, or canoeing.
