Meet the owners of Progressive Pilgrimage and your guides for every journey:
I am a born traveler, literally. I was born abroad to military parents, and a love for the world has never gotten out of my bones. This love has carried me all over the United States, to Central America, Europe, Southern Africa, the Middle East, and even to the Presbyterian United Nations Office as a lowly intern. The same love has motivated my ministry in the Presbyterian Church (USA) where I am an ordained minister and parish pastor. With a bachelor’s degree in history and a Master of Divinity, I bring expertise in theology, spirituality, religious history, and biblical studies. I look forward to sharing my love of the world with you!
I am not a born traveler, but the first time Heather talked me into visiting Israel and the Palestinian territories, I was hooked. I am, however a natural student and experienced teacher. I hold Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in history, and recently completed a Master’s in organizational leadership. During the day I work as an editor in an academic publishing company, and I have moonlighted as an adjunct professor of Western Civilization at our local technical college. Finally, I am the outgoing type who loves meeting people from every background. I think you will find that I make an informative and jovial guide for our journey together.
