I am a Western Pennsylvania native. After growing up in Butler and graduating from the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown, the Lord led me south. I attended Asbury Theological Seminary in Wilmore, Kentucky where I met my wife, Marsha.
After seminary, Marsha and I felt God’s call to her home state of Georgia. Serving two appointments in the deep South taught me how to speak southern and appreciate real iced tea.
I returned to Asbury to earn my Doctorate of Divinity in Biblical Preaching and Advanced Church Leadership. From there God led me back to Western PA.
I am an outdoor enthusiast. From trail running to bow hunting to wading the mountain streams looking for trout, I love spending in the woods and water. But my greatest treasure is spending time with Marsha and our three children: McKenna, Abby, and Matthew.
I love to preach and teach. My highest delight is watching the Holy Spirit win hearts and transform lives.
