- Ministry you are passionate about at Twickenham:
- Outreach and Missions
- Favorite Bible Verse/character and why:
- Favorite verse: My Prayer for Twickenham: Romans 15:5-6: May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you the same attitude of mind toward each other that Christ Jesus had, so that with one mind and one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
- Favorite character: Joseph is a favorite character of mine from the Old Testament. He was faced with repeated hardships yet “the Lord was with him” and had a plan to sustain Israel through Joseph’s difficult circumstances. It encourages me to trust in God beyond what I can see.
- Favorite Team:
- Atlanta Braves, Washington Redskins and any underdog SEC team
- Hobbies/Extracurricular Activities:
- I enjoy doing projects around the house, yard work and landscaping. As time allows I like to travel, explore new areas and hike. And, as an extended family, we enjoy spending lots of special events and time together (even if we have to make up an event).
- What would you tell someone looking for a church home about Twickenham?
- We’re a family of kind and generous Christ followers, and it’s a great place to experience real life and serve God.
