Hi everyone--I was called to be your Pastor at St. Mark's in March of 2007 and began as Pastor here on June 1, 2007. I went to the University of Arkansas, Bachelor of Arts in Journalism (Advertising/Public Relations), Class of 1982. I went to Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary in Berkeley, California, receiving the Master of Divinity degree in 1987. I was ordained in 1987 and have served parishes in Lincoln, Nebraska; Park Forest, Illinois (far south suburban Chicago); Burbank, Illinois (southwest suburban Chicago) and Cambridge, Illinois (western Illinois). God has been and continues to be good to me through the parishes and people I have served--each parish has taught me different things about ministry and has helped me grow consistently in pastoral skills.
