In 1975, I became a youth pastor at Skokie Valley Baptist Church in Wilmette, Illinois. In 1978, I became Senior Pastor of Grace Church in Erie, PA, where I spent 32 years in that post followed by three years on staff as an associate. In 2013, I went into interim pastoral ministry serving Old North Church in Canfield, OH and First Baptist Church in New Castle, PA. It is my pleasure to currently be serving Christ Community Church. My three greatest pastoral joys are being experienced here – preaching the Word, leading the church, and helping people grow in their faith in Christ.
Marie and I will be married 50 years in August. We reside in Erie, PA. We have four children and eight grandchildren. I’m a graduate of Moody Bible Institute, Dallas Theological Seminary, and Trinity Evangelical Divinity School.
One of my hobbies is collecting and reading old books. The earliest book in my collection is a Bible
printed in 1599. A Bible – how appropriate.
