As the Connection Pastor I help our people get connected to a small group, serving opportunities, membership, and our online community. I started attending Willamette in 1977 when I moved to Eugene to attend college. My first paid position at Willamette was in 1980 as the middle school math teacher. I have served in several roles since then: church preschool director, day-school preschool teacher, day-school preschool director, school admission director, children’s pastor and now connection pastor. I am most passionate about Helping others know how valuable they are to God and us.
