In his time at The River he has served as a small group leader and a Sunday morning prayer minister, taught classes on the Bible, given the message a few times on Sunday mornings, and assisted Kay on special church projects such as a Lenten labyrinth. In his spare time he enjoys reading, solving crossword puzzles, writing poetry, and – whenever possible – hiking high in the mountains!
