I graduated from the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Gettysburg in 2005, and then served two congregations in Michigan and one in Alaska prior to my present call. I hold a degree in electrical engineering and a master’s degree in business administration, each attained prior to my ordination as a pastor.
My wife, Jessica, and I have been blessed with four children and many grandchildren.
My passion is to teach others what God’s word, the Bible, means for us as we live our lives today. I am certain that the person of Jesus Christ is revealed throughout the biblical record, including the Old Testament. His love, grace, and mercy is shown through the lives of others so
that His light may be shined on ours.

For the most part, I grew up in Texas along with my older brother and only sibling who still resides there with my two very active and curious nephews. Attending a week of church camp three summers in a row with a fellow sister in Christ was one of the highlights of my childhood growing up in Texas, in addition to the life-long friends that were made. Other fond memories come to mind while spending time at the beach after a drive to Galveston taking only a couple of hours.
After graduating high school in Albuquerque and while working part-time, I attended Central New Mexico Community College (CNM), although it had a different name back then, earning my Associate of Arts in Pre-Management degree. In pursuit of an undergraduate degree and working full-time, I attended the Anderson School of Management at the University of New Mexico (UNM) earning a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) degree while maintaining a 3.5 grade point average (GPA). The achievement was particularly important to me being the first female in my family to receive a college degree. Currently, I am pursuing a graduate degree and am enrolled as a full-time student at the Anderson School of Management UNM. In the fall of 2020, I anticipate receiving a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree and will be the first female in the family to do so.
Past professional work experience includes employment at an Attorney’s Law Offices located in the downtown district, Re-Insurance company domiciled in the Turks and Caicos Islands located in the Uptown area, and briefly at a Real Estate company.
During my down-time, I enjoy being in the great outdoors and cannot get enough of mother nature.
It has been a blessing to serve Faith as a staff member for the past 13 years!
