I’m a regular guy whose heart has been taken by the love and grace of God. I have received far more than I deserve or could ever give back in this life. I am married to the most amazing woman I have ever known who in so many ways shows me what a Jesus-centered life looks like. Together we’ve been blessed with four incredible gifts from heaven (our children!), and we’re proud of them! I currently serve as Pastor of the Henrietta campus (Rochester, NY area) of Elim Gospel Church, and I’m also teaching at Elim Bible Institute and College where I currently serve as full-time Faculty and Program Chair. In my free time, I enjoy hiking, going to the gym, and gardening. One of my greatest hopes is that I will be listed among my children’s heroes.
