It has been almost a year since I joined the VTS family. What an amazing journey it has been thus far to serve in this holy place with such extraordinary people. I have had the privilege of getting to know staff, faculty, students, board members, and countless community leaders – thank you for such a gracious welcome! I am finding that this is truly one of the best places to work in northern Virginia.

A lot has happened in fiscal year 2018 in the areas that I am privileged to have oversight. In Finance, we completed a very successful audit and implemented a new payroll system. Facilities Management experienced another full year of faculty home renovations, office moves/relocations, painting and continuous campus improvements of our Buildings and Grounds.

In January 2018, I assumed responsibility for the Technology Department. We have staff that are leading us in audio visual innovation and we are experiencing tremendous success with our managed service partner, Focus Data Solutions. I look forward to profiling each of these departments this week and sharing in more depth a bit about the contributions and efforts of those who are vital infrastructure to the success of Virginia Theological Seminary.

For today:

This is the day that the Lord has made; I will rejoice and be glad in it!
