References for Gene state he is a dynamic leader who is both spiritual, faithful, and has a heart for Jesus.

His skills and experience include marketing, promotions and grant writing, summer camp leadership and growth, adult programming, and retreat management. His passion for youth and adult discipleship, organizational skills, and love of God’s Church will be a blessing to all of us.
