What is your favorite Bible verse?

2 Corinthians 5:17-20 – “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God.”

What is your favorite part of working at FBR?

The incredible, loving, supportive people.

What is your favorite food? 

Only one? Ummm – Mexican. Is that a food? It’s a food group, right? I like all of the items on the menu at all Mexican or TexMex restaurants. And Cajun. That counts, too, right? And gumbo. Am I out of guesses yet?

Where was your favorite vacation?

Wow. These are hard! The one with the mountains.  No! The one with the beaches.  No! The one in the UK! No, wait! The one in San Diego! No! The one on the cruise ship! I like vacations like I like food groups…)

What do you want to do before you die?

Wait?! I’m dying?! Hmmm, I think I’d like to be able to host a New Year’s party at our house to ring in the new year in 2071! Or, uhhhhm, I want to do stand-up comedy! And I’d like to have a nice woodworking shop at my house with all the tools and the time to create some beautiful furniture. Oh, and I want to… no, I guess that’s it. I’m living my dreams right now, getting to be the discipleship pastor at FBCR!
