He also worked for two years as a Small Group Coordinator at Wesley United Methodist in Charleston, IL shortly after leaving Cincinnati. During his time in Charleston he spent a year as a lay preacher serving congregations in Hume and Edgar, Illinois. His faith has been a prime motivator of his work as a community organizer and also as a conservation organizer.
