I have a very high view of the Church, including its structure, function, and potential. For that reason, unlike my speaking, writing, consulting, and educational services, I do not require compensation for religious services like preaching or theological education. After all, I have a growing family, so I must also be very frugal with my time and energy.
If you feel a call to have me participate in the worship life of your community, I want to discern that call with you.
That process will include discerning how the necessary costs of travel, lodging, and food will be met. In conversation with hosts or venues, I may be able to offer flexibility in certain costs associated with logistics for religious services.
I am not ordained and have not felt a call to preside over communion, but I have preached and provided theological education to a wide array of denominations and politically diverse assemblies.
Worship and theology are communal in nature, and I invite congregations of all sizes and means to consider how I may offer myself as “a living sacrifice” so that conversation, communities, and care may be enriched.
