This statement (300 words or less) could include qualifications, convictions, thoughts on issues, concerns, etc.

I am one of those pastors who said they had no interest in serving as a General/Jurisdictional Conference delegate. Never say "never", right?

Like many, I am concerned about the future of the United Methodist Church. I have always believed that the United Methodist Church has the greatest opportunity to reach the world with the Good News of Jesus Christ, but if we keep focusing on issues (although important) that are so polarizing, we may miss that opportunity.

I am a "traditionalist" and will always vote to uphold Scripture and our traditional stance on marriage and ordination. I believe we should extend the grace of God to everyone, and love all of God's people enough to tell them the truth.

I am seeking to be a delegate in hopes that I may play a small part in who is selected as South Georgia's next bishop. We need leaders who lead by example and not by popularity. A bishop is one who listens to all, responds to all and who seeks God's truth above all else.

The United Methodist Church (no matter what it may look like) and our South Georgia Conference has much to look forward to in the coming years! And what should really excite us about this is... that God wants us all to be part of it!
