I was born in Hershey, Pennsylvania and received a Bachelor of Science degree in Youth Ministries with a minor in Physical Education from Pensacola Christian College in 1994 and promptly began my career in education. The Lord led my family to Temple Baptist Church in 1999 where we have served not only as Associate/Youth Pastor but I also taught Bible classes to grades 7 through 12 at Temple Baptist School. I am now serving as the interim pastor. My wife, Sharon, and I have three girls. I love hiking, running, reading, sports, and buying and selling old tools and antiques.
