What I do at Messiah

It is a sacred honor to lead our congregation through preaching, teaching, administration, and a variety of expressions of local church ministry.

My God Story

I was raised in a Christian home and nurtured in the faith by a loving congregation. During the summer of 1985, I responded to the call of ordained ministry while serving as a summer chaplain at Mammoth Cave National Park. My faith journey has had many "mile-marker moments" where I have re-affirmed and deepened my relationship with Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior.

My Education

B.A. in Journalism Broadcasting, The Ohio State University, 1986
Master of Divinity, United Theological Seminary, 1990
Doctorate of Ministry, United Theological Seminary, 1994

My Family

Nancy and I met while attending The Ohio State University and were married in 1987. Our son, Chase, is employed by Indiana University in the office of 1st year experience programs.

My Hobbies

Nancy and I enjoy traveling, swimming, and attending OSU sporting events.
