Work Experience

Work Experience I've always worked for the Lutherans (ELCA). I've learned a whole lot about people, about community, about transparency, about clarity, and about care for our neighbors. I'm a member of NATIVITY LUTHERAN in North Conway which I mention here because Nativity's website has a page for people who might wonder about what a Lutheran is.

My responsibilities include raising...
