Other: I am a third generation minister. Both of my grandfathers and my mom and dad served as pastors. From this perspective and my own ministry experiences, I have seen the very best and the very worst of the church. My desire is to make the church a place of refuge for hurting people.
After years of ministry observing the serious problems people both in and out of the church faced, I attended graduate school to receive clinical training to better understand and help those I minister to.
