Last month, I had the opportunity to attend the national conference of the Association of Presbyterian Church Educators, this year held in Baltimore. 2015 marks my fourth year in a row of participating in the APCE annual event. Gathering with hundreds of other ministry leaders - all of whom are passionate about the educational ministries of the church - has been an inspiring and emboldening experience for me. I travel to the conference with questions and concerns. I leave the conference with answers and ideas (and if I'm being honest, new questions and concerns as well). Ultimately, participating in national conferences and conventions such as APCE leave me feeling hopeful.
I'm a husband, a father, a news junkie, a theatre enthusiast, an amateur foodie, a wannabe barista, and an ordained pastor in the Presbyterian Church (USA).
