Let me introduce myself.
My "operations" job is to keep things moving along. In this respect you might think of me as a "church administrator." I help with budgeting, building issues, scheduling, policy development, staff issues and the like. If something doesn't seem to be working, you might give me a yell.
I grew up in the Midwest. After college I attended Eden Theological Seminary, was ordained and served as a congregational minister for ten years. Then I went back to school. I received a Ph.D. in Public Policy Analysis and Administration which led me to twenty-five years in academics.
I live with my daughter, son-in-law and two grandchildren. Three more grandchildren are in Princeton, NJ (along with my son and his wife.)
