A Little More:

I grew up in Munhall. Played a lot of ice hockey and backyard sports. Throughout middle school and high school, I developed a love for the performing arts on-stage and on-screen. My faith in Christ was always a constant, but became even more pronounced during my high school years. I began college in pursuit of a career in filmmaking but sensed the Lord leading me toward full-time ministry. After graduating, I became a full-time Director of Student Ministries. My beautiful, faithful wife, Lindsay, and I have been married since 2003. We have three energetic, creative boys (Isaiah, Caleb, and Nathan). For me, one silver-lining that came out of the infamous year of 2020 was my ordination as a pastor at Pleasant Hills Church. My family and I love being a part of this church as we walk the journey of faith together.
