Greetings, friends in ministry! As I step into my new role as the District Superintendent of the LaGrange District, I want first to thank Rev. Carol Cook for helping make the transition as seamless as possible. Rev. Carol is a good friend and respected colleague of mine. Carol, we love you and join our voices in chorus saying thank you for all you have meant to the District. 

I also want each of you to know I am excited to jump into ministry with you. The LaGrange District has many gifts and I look forward to discovering them with you, and serving among and with you for the cause of Christ.
