Our Staff
From my hometown of Marion, Pennsylvania, I came to North Carolina to play baseball at Wingate University and study Business Administration with emphasis in Accounting. I met my wife, Kellie, at Wingate and we were engaged after graduation. While at Wingate, God called me into the ministry to be a pastor. God spoke to me through the scripture verse John 15:5, "I am the vine and you are the branches. If you remain attached to me, you can bear much fruit; but apart from me, you can do nothing." I went to Duke Divinity and Kellie went to East Carolina University for graduate school in School Counseling. After my first year at Duke, I applied to be a student-pastor. I received an appointment at Lea's Chapel UMC, which is located 5 miles outside Roxboro. I served there for 3 years pastoring the church and going to classes at Duke. After graduation I was appointed to Hawthorne Lane UMC in Charlotte to be an Associate Pastor. My focus was youth and young adult ministry. After 3 years, I was appointed to Troutman 1st UMC to revitalize the church. We did a lot of outreach events for children and youth over the 6 1/2 years. While at Troutman we were blessed with a girl, Mia. She is an answer to prayer for us. Mid-year I received a call to Mt. Holly 1st UMC. God continued to say, "Trust me, I have a plan". So I trusted God and accepted the new appointment. We did a lot of great things over the 5 years I was there at Mt. Holly. In our first year at Mt. Holly we were blessed with another girl, Hannah Faith, who was a miracle baby, but never left the hospital due to medical issues. She lived to be 152 days old. In October of 2021, I received another call to Oak Ridge UMC. I felt God calling me here and I was reminded that I said I would go wherever God calls me to go. I am excited to see what God has in store for the missions and ministries of this church. Read More
