I accepted Christ as my personal Savior at the age of 14, during basketball camp. Even though I attended Church all of my life, and even attended a Christian School, I knew that I did not have a personal relationship with Christ. In 1997, I graduated from Faith Baptist School and went on to Northland Baptist Bible College. I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Youth Ministry in the Spring of 2001.
In 2001, I got married to my wife, Carrie, and in the fall, took a position at Northland Baptist Bible College as Community Ministry Coordinator for the Extension Office. I also began working on my Master’s degree in Biblical Counseling which I completed in the Spring of 2007.
The Lord has allowed me to minister in two different churches as a youth pastor. The first was First Baptist Church in West Seneca, and the second was NY and Victory Baptist Church in Jacksonville, FL. I was ordained in July of 2008. The Lord led us to Mountain Home Bible Church in July of 2011.
My life verse is Galatians 6:14 “But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world.” May this be the testimony of my life and ministry.
