Share your understanding of the relationship of the District structure with the local congregation.
               My understanding of the relationship of the District to the local congregation is one of support,
               leadership, and ethical accountability. This is accomplished best when the true spirit of collaboration
               and respect is present allowing the COB to grow and flourish.

               Describe the gifts God has given you to continue the work of Jesus; particularly through the position
               to which you have been nominated.
               I believe my gifts lie in being a community collaborator and communicator. The experiences I had, and
               trainings received as a volunteer at York 1  COB allowed me to grow into a position of leadership with
               the YMCA of York County.  This included growing a group of YMCA community programs to a full-service
               YMCA serving 3800+ members. These programs were to fulfill the mission of the YMCA in building
               healthy spirit, mind, and body for all. I worked with churches, school districts, local government, and
               community residents and organizations to put programs and services in place.
