Kurt grew up in Vermont and has a real heart for small Vermont churches. When he was about 12 years old and active in the Castleton UCC, he remembers thinking in regard to small-church life: “Something happens here that doesn’t happen anywhere else…and I want to be a part of it.”  And a part of it he still is, now ordained and trained both as an interim pastor and as a chaplain.  He has passions for CPE (clinical pastoral education) as well as cartooning, which he uses as a therapeutic tool with veterans to help address and treat PTSD. Kurt spent some interim time in the Granville-Hancock Church and, later, the Waitsfield UCC.  Her has served the Warren United Church of Christ since December, 2016.
