About My Family

I was blessed to grow up in Louisiana and to serve in ministries in Louisiana, Mississippi and Tennessee before God's call moved me to the Northeast. Over the three years of traveling from Tennessee to Maine for short-term missions with a church restart, God molded my heart for the people of Maine. When I arrived in 2001, although "from away," I was immediately accepted as a "Mainer/Mainiac." God's call to minister here is reaffirmed daily—through His people, His creation, His opportunities. Maine is a beautiful place (lots of photo ops) with wonderful people. My favorite pastimes are one-on-ones with college young adults (or anyone who will have coffee with me!) and road trip photo ops across the state. I am blessed and thankful to minister here.

About My Ministry

For many years I served on church staff, and God brought college young adults into my life! In the past 10 years, He has opened doors for me to love on college young adults on campuses in the area. Today I serve as a campus minister/missionary and advisor to an evangelical student group called "The Bridge" at the University of Southern Maine (USM). USM has three campuses with an enrollment of 7,800 students and is in the top 100 campuses in the nation for diversity. I also serve as the collegiate ministry coordinator for Maine, where there are 35 colleges and universities with less than 13 providing any type of evangelical ministry for students. My vision is to see an evangelical collegiate ministry developed on every campus in Maine with a campus minister/missionary serving in each one, to see evangelical churches reaching college young adults and college young adults serving in local churches and being sent out to minister across Maine, New England and the world.
