I welcome the opportunity to speak with groups, small or large, about the many ways we move toward God’s vision of the New City.

I’ve spoken close to home at women’s retreats and congregations in Arizona and Canada. I’ve taught pastors and practitioners abroad in Burundi, Kenya and Uganda.

I’ve preached alongside social justice advocates in Australia. Anywhere people gather around Jesus and the liberating work of God, I love to share in the conversation and offer Biblical content for spirited engagement.

I’m most often asked to address topics ranging from justice to jubilee economics, Sabbath to Shalom structures. I often preach from the liberation story of Exodus, the prophetic poetry of Isaiah, the parables and gestures of Jesus.

I am always energized when teaching about the theology that underpins community development work – and bring great stories from our fieldwork in Burundi to keep the learning quite concrete. I also savor the opportunity to talk about adoption – my own experience as an adopted person and an adoptive mother of two Burundian babies, as well as a theological understanding of adopted living shaped by both my education and experience.


I’D LOVE TO COME SPEAK AT YOUR CONFERENCE OR EVENT. CONTACT ME FOR MORE INFORMATION.
