Greetings, and welcome to the webpage of Christ Episcopal Church in West River, Maryland. We're glad you've come. I have been the Rector (pastor) of this congregation since July of 2011. Previously, I served as an Associate Rector at St. John's Episcopal Church in Ellicott City, Maryland (2007-2011) and as a Clergy Resident at Christ Episcopal Church in Alexandria, Virginia (2005-2007). I earned my Master of Divinity from The General Theological Seminary of the Episcopal Church in 2005 and am a 2001-graduate of Drew University in Madison, New Jersey with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Religious Studies and English Literature. At Christ Church, I enjoy preaching and growing deeper in faith with people of all ages. ​
