I was born and raised in the hills of Boyertown. My home wasn’t a Christian home growing up (we would go to a church on Christmas and Easter – that was pretty much it). It wasn’t until I was a teenager that I got introduced to the Gospel and had a major life change. I was Baptized into Christ in August of 1997 in my dad’s pond.  I worshiped at the Boyertown church for the next four years and received a lot of grounding during this time in the scriptures. The study at the Boyertown church was always verse by verse expository. This greatly affected my style of study and teaching to this day.

I have previously worshipped at Coventry Hills church of Christ, Venice church of Christ, and Pearl Street church of Christ. At Pearl Street I was involved in a Children’s ministry called Character Club. It was a program designed to teach children Godly attributes, and ultimately the Gospel, through fun and engaging activities.

My wife, Meredith, and I started worshipping at Chesmont in 2014. We were invited to be a part of the Senior High week 1 team at Camp Manatwany in early 2015 and have been involved with that since then as Bible teachers, camp nurse and now co-directors of the week. I am currently the Facility Supervisor at Camp and also own and run MTR Remodeling.

We have two Boys – John Eli and Noah. They bring us tremendous joy! We are humbled by the responsibility of raising them up in the Faith and consider ourselves very blessed.

I am honored to have the opportunity to serve Chesmont as a Deacon.
