“I am delighted to begin this journey with you as interim organist. My prayer is that I can offer the best of my ability to the glory of God and to the edification of his people here at First Reformed. My story as an organist began many years ago. In fact, 31 years ago sitting beside Mrs. Francis – the church organist from my childhood. I was always fascinated with the organ, so Mrs. Francis would put me on the bench beside her at the end of the service, and she would teach me about the organ. Those small “seeds” that she planted when I was five years old have transpired into the organist I am today. “As I grew, I continued my deep love of playing the organ – including playing for a number of churches. These experiences have shaped me both as an organist and as an individual. I give thanks to God and deep appreciation to those who have helped me along the way, and I try to continue to maintain a spirit of learning and growth no matter what I am doing for God and the people of God. “In addition to playing the organ, I am also an English Professor at Sandhills Community College. I enjoy teaching, and it has been a rewarding career. I have taught at schools across North and South Carolina, but I relocated to the area to be closer to my brother, who was stationed a Ft. Bragg, in the hopes to getting to see him and his wife more – as they are having their first baby in March. When I am not teaching or in church, I can be found antiquing, gardening, or baking. In the coming weeks, I hope to learn more about each of you, as you will surely learn more about me. “As we enter this season of discernment, I pray that my gift and service of music at the organ will be one that First Reformed can use for ministry and service in this com-munity. I am excited to start this journey alongside you as interim organist. May we all feel the presence of Christ and the Holy Spirit as we continue forward.”
