I have served on the GBEC for several years. I bring to this position a knowledge of the present process, a dedication to the work of formation for those seeking orders in TEC, and a passion for exploring how the GOE's and other tools can support our work in God's mission. The gifts and skills of clergy needed to serve the Church of 21st century should be grounded in our traditions and should also serve the present day context. I bring passion, reflection and diocesan wide experience on the exploration to this conversation. l would look forward to working with the GBEC on how the GOE's can best serve this work.
