I experienced a call to ministry after serving as a youth leader for several years. It was literally a phone call with an invitation to serve two parishes in Central Illinois that helped me discover my gifts and graces for ministry. I served those parishes for two years. Most recently, I have served as a hospital chaplain and chaplain educator. I have experienced God’s grace in the bustle of the hospital, the classroom, the sanctuary and in quiet conversations and holy gatherings. United in Faith has drawn me back to congregational life and leadership and I am excited to be part of God’s transformative love on Irving Park.
I live in Berwyn, with my spouse, the Rev. Julie Boleyn (ELCA) and our child, Maddie. I love to read and to sing and to tinker.
