My work and interests revolves around the cultivation of fresh expressions on faith in the neighborhood.

I do this through multiple different contexts and capacities. These endeavors can be separated into four general categories. Below I have described the categories and provided examples with links (when available).

Local Church

Forming, cultivating, and supporting local place based faith communities is a central part of my work. Along with co-leading a faith community in our own parish. I support, encourage, and teach others how to do the same in their own contexts. I also help people connect spiritual practice/discipleship with their everyday life in their neighborhood.

My Work In This Area includes:

  • Cultivating a Local Faith Community (Coming Soon)

  • Spiritual Direction

  • Retreats

Neighborhood/City Work

Being active in and building organizations that help unite neighbors to work for the common good of our place is important. These associations can work in a varity of spaces including economics, food systems, and education.

Community Development

Broken relationships. Divided communities. Poverty and violence exists in all neighborhoods . . . including mine. The good news is that God is working through us and others in our places to help restore things to the way they were intended to be and I am committed to working to see my neighbors and our community wholistically restored.
