I am always amazed by how much really happens in a year. Yet my greatest highlight is easy to point out, it was receiving my Masters of Divinity this past spring. After four years of hard study, building out Fresh Vine, working at a few churches, and helping a homeless shelter I had finally received my degree.

It was a deep honor to walk across the stage and receive my degree, joining the ranks of those who have gone before us for hundreds of years. I love that we, at Fresh Vine, get to serve the church and those who have committed their lives to serving others. That I get to serve in the church, while also serving those leading the church is a blessing that is hard to put into words.
