I married my high-school sweetheart in June of 2007. Since then we have been overwhelmingly blessed with three hyper-active boys, and one sweet baby girl. I joined SRCC as the teaching Pastor in January of 2014 and continually grow in thankfulness for my amazing church family. Apart from the love of Bible study, preaching, and quality time with my family, I enjoy recreational sports, drinking an abundance of coffee, and writing music.
I have been an immersed Christian for almost 30 years, and prior to coming to SonRise, was a Deacon and Treasurer for Buckeye Christian Church in Grove City Ohio for over 20 years. I was born in Ohio, and lived there for the first 58+ years of my life. I met my wife at work, and we have been married for 37 years (as of September 2016). We moved to Summerville in 2015 after visiting my wife’s parents here many times over the past 30 years. We became members of Sonrise in 2015. We have two grown daughters. One lives in Ohio, and other lives in North Charleston. We truly love spending time with family, especially our granddaughter who was born in July of 2015. I love spending time with my family (especially our granddaughter who was born in July of 2015), and enjoy watching college football.
I was born and raised in southern Ohio where I met my wife of 30 years. Together we raised 3 boys. I was baptized into Christ in 2007 and have been active in church leadership since. We moved to South Carolina in 2015 to be near our grand daughter after my wife retired from teaching. God led us to this church and it's a great group of Christ followers.
