MY ROLE AT CHURCH ON THE HILL
To lead us in living out
our vision of helping people Know God, Find Freedom, Discover Purpose and Play
a Role in God’s story; to live “it”; to empower others; to develop leaders; and to pray.
I am married to a
beautiful woman of God (Kristin) who, without saying more, is my I Corinthians
13, and we have two kids – Luke and Grace.
After obtaining a B.A. from Olivet Nazarene University in 1990
and a J.D. from The Ohio State University College of Law in 1993, I practiced
law in Pittsburgh, PA from 1993-2000, and I continue to work with a consulting
firm that provides financial, insurance, and other business advice to
companies. In May 2005, I obtained a Master’s of Divinity from Nazarene
Theological Seminary and then began serving as a pastor.
MY DREAM VACATION WOULD BE
Spending a summer traveling throughout Europe with Kristin
visiting old castles and churches, enjoying cultural foods, staying at unique
places, and watching Kristin’s eyes sparkle as we experience and see new things
on this adventure.
