My Vision for St John’s
“My vision can be summed up as such: a family of faith. No one individual is more important than the other. As a family, we all play a part and have a vital role in seeing that this family grows and matures in the likeness of Christ. It isn’t Ordination that singles me out in this family of faith, but our shared baptismal inheritance that calls all of us to the task of being Priest, Prophet and King in building the Kingdom of God.”
