I have enjoyed providing oversight to Worship Center’s pastoral care ministry since I arrived here in 2017. I also oversee many of our Support and Recovery group leaders along with teaching discipleship classes. I love helping people build a life of faith, leadership, and purpose in Christ.

I was born and raised in Rochester, NY in a large Catholic family. When I was 17 years old  I joined the Air Force. Two years later, after getting in serious trouble because of my drug and alcohol abuse, I was introduced to a personal relationship with Jesus at the Christian Servicemen’s Center in Kaiserslautern, Germany. God radically changed my world as I was reborn into this brand new life I continue to grow in and love!

After being discharged from the Air Force in 1981, I received a call to pastoral ministry and enrolled at Elim Bible Institute and College (EBI&C), later receiving my bachelor’s degree in Biblical Studies from Trinity Bible College and Seminary. I met my wife, Cindy (who also serves at Worship Center), at EBI&C. We have four grown children living all over the country and eight grandchildren. We love to connect with our children, ride bike trails, enjoy meals with our small group, find new coffee shops, and explore beautiful Lancaster!

My passion is to help people meet Jesus and grow into an active relationship with Him as they are transformed into the beautiful life God has designed for them – one engaging step at a time.
