My city of birth is: Kinston, NC
My favorite John Wesley Quote: “I look upon all the world as my parish; thus far I mean, that, in whatever part of it I am, I judge it meet, right, and my bounden duty to declare unto all that are willing to hear, the glad tidings of salvation. This is the work which I know God has called me to; and sure I am that His blessing attends it.”
What are you called to create? Alongside the good folks of Pink Hill United Methodist Church in our small-town, rural area, I feel called to create a coalition that would be organized by a diverse group of people for the purpose of strengthening and developing our community. The vision is for this alliance to give decision-making power and voice to people from different pockets of our community, including women and men of assorted faith/denominational affiliation, race, age, and socio-economic status, and to work together to make our community more whole- spiritually, socially, physically, and economically. We will work to strengthen our relationships across dividing lines, to name the gifts and passions that are often invisible, and to organize and mobilize folks to create something together.
