I am also a Western Pennsylvania native. For much of my life, I have lived in Jefferson County (Reynoldsville and Brookville). I received my Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (Accounting) from Clarion University. My education continued to lead me west, and I graduated from The Methodist Theological School in Ohio (North of Columbus) with a Master’s of Divinity degree.

It was while attending Clarion University that I met my wife, Becky. She has been a great companion and partner in life and ministry. We were married in 1995. We have one daughter, Emma Grace. She is currently a student at Allegheny College.

It is my pleasure to be appointed here as the Pastor of Community Care. It a setting where I can use my gifts of care and compassion in wonderful ways. I love being a pastor but have always cringed when people would introduce me as the “preacher”. I love to be introduced as “my pastor”.
