Bethel Mennonite Church

2016/17 Artist-in-Residence

  • In my position as Artist-in-Residence at Bethel Mennonite Church I initiated, along with co-artist Amelia Warkentin, a storytelling project that combined writing, editing, and performing to encourage and develop a culture of shared perspectives within the Mennonite faith through metaphor and narrative. Our residency concluded with the creation of an anthology entitled Journeying with God: A Bethel Book of Stories.
