I did not grow up in a Christian home but came to faith in Jesus after spending my early years in the Lutheran Church. From the time I was in 3rd grade, I knew God was calling me to Himself. I asked Him to be my Savior when I was in 10th grade.
I have served God, both in and outside the local church in many positions: Beach/Boardwalk Evangelism, Campground Preaching, Young Life Clubs, Leading Bible Studies/Small Groups, Teaching Sunday School, Leading Youth Groups, Leading Worship, and currently I serve as Pastor at Calvary Baptist Church where I also lead the Worship Team and play the guitar.
- I Received my B.S.W. and M.S.W. in Social Work from Temple University.
- I received my M. Div. from Conservative Baptist Seminary of the East.
- I received my D. Min. from Northern Baptist Theological Seminary.
I was married in 1981 to my best friend, Kathy. We have 2 daughters and 3 grandchildren.
