People would be surprised to know – I wrestled all four years for Messiah College. My highest finish was 4th in the conference.
Having grown up a pastor’s kid, attended Messiah College, and Southern Evangelical Seminary, and having served in a variety of capacities in several Church contexts up and down the east coast I have discovered my passion: to communicate the timeless and unchanging truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in ever evolving, culturally relevant, impactful ways.
My roll at SonRise Church is multisite church campus launch support. Whatever needs to be done to bridge the gap at a multisite launch, I want to be able to provide and then raise up other leaders in my place until the multisite is fully staffed with enthusiastic servant leaders.
My greatest personal assets are passion, education, and an ability to serve multiple roles (preaching, leadership, music, outreach, etc…). My greatest external assets are my terrific wife Rachel and two daughters and the amazingly talented and supportive ministry team here at SonRise Church.
Finally, my greatest asset of all is the security and peace found in my salvation by grace trough faith in Jesus Christ God the Son, the power of God the Holy Spirit who dwells in us, and the knowledge that I have been forgiven and reconciled to God the Father who has called me to join SonRise Church on mission. I could not be more excited!
