Getting Started

I am a hearing person who is trying to minister to the deaf community. I want to get to know you, and learn from you about Christ. 

I'm originally from Cleveland, OH. I helped coordinate a huge Christian Music Festival for 30,000 people each summer. The last year I worked for them, I initiated having the music performances interpreted in ASL. I quickly learned that the deaf communities in Cleveland were well connected, enthusiastic, and deeply desiring to grow in their faith.

In October 2016, I became a full time project manager for the Apostolate for Persons with Disabilities in the Diocese of Madison, WI. At that time, our diocese had very little deaf ministry. We're looking forward to doing a lot more in the coming months and years! Please keep us in your prayers as we begin our journey.
