Preaching

kathy_in_robe_preachingI have been a clergyperson in the United Methodist Church since 2001 and have served and preached in many different settings. I have learned so much from each of these appointments, most especially the importance of listening and asking good questions. In some ways, I view being a pastor as being a spiritual director of a group, helping congregants to see and experience where God is in their lives.

Preaching is a true passion of mine. I enjoy the whole process of creating a sermon – studying, writing, and presenting. Preaching is, ultimately, an experience of God, and because of that I like to get creative with my preaching, either using song or giving the congregation some tangible action in response to the word. I have had experience preaching in both a traditional and contemporary setting.

If you would like for me to preach and share a word of God’s love and grace, please contact me; I would be more than happy to talk with you about scheduling a time for your church or special event. The fee for preaching varies according to your needs for that day. I look forward to hearing from you.
