It seems that I have grown up in the “Church”. My family would be at every service, class and dinner. However, I realized at the age of five that being at church would not get me into Heaven, I needed to personally trust Christ as my Savior. Many people impacted my life for the Lord but it was my Youth Pastor and mom who had the greatest impact as they prayed me into the ministry. Through their prayer, I developed a love for God, His word and for sharing with others through teaching and preaching. I attended Baptist Bible College of PA and Spurgeon Baptist Bible College with a BA in Theology with a minor in Religious Education. My wife Laura is the love of my life, partner in ministry and mother to our 5 children.
Working with the children and youth at SHBC is my passion because such a void of God exists in today’s society, and youth today are so hungry for information on how God fits into their everyday life.
