I subscribe to the Book of Concord because it is faithful to the Scriptures. I have designed liturgies to meet the needs of congregations I have served. I am comfortable using a wide variety of liturgies from LBW and WOV, including other sung liturgies such as Holden Evening Prayer, Joyous Light, Now The Feast, and Celebration. I honor both traditional hymnody and the inclusion of theologically sound modern hymnody that correctly preaches the Christian faith. I conduct myself in an emotionally mature manner and demonstrate a high ethical standard. I strive for transparency in communication and provide creative solutions that respond to real needs.
