Local church connection and district:
Grace UMC, Manassas, Nova District

Guiding scripture leading into General Conference:
John 13:34
I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another.

Favorite paragraph of the Book of Discipline (we all have one, right?): 

To all people and pastors of United Methodism: “Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.” —1 Corinthians 1:3  (Offering Grace and Peace to all! )

A brief statement on your call to serve as a delegate:

I have been in youth ministry for 20 +years. I can no longer preach and teach of inclusivity but have our denominational words/ideals be in contradiction.  Young people want to be loved by an inclusive God and can smell out hypocrisy. Have you ever had to help a hurting teen, answer a question in a confirmation class or explain our differences to a new believer? I love being a United Methodist and my gift is to serve during this difficult time to help make a difference. I am hope filled. 

Specific prayer request(s) for the work ahead:

Please pray for the finances of the church to honor God and be stretched to help the most of God’s people.
