“Having served in churches for 40 years as an ordained elder in the United Methodist Church, I am able to share my top two passions of ministry here at RiverWoods: worship and pastoral care. Throughout my parish ministry, I always felt a nudging from God to serve as a chaplain in senior living. I absolutely love sharing my ministry with the residents and associates here. I feel privileged to be at RiverWoods at this stage of my life and for the opportunity to serve.”
