I have been blessed to be married to my wife Jeannette for more than 30 years. We have three adult children and one grand-daughter and one on the way. I have been pastor at Bridge to Grace Church in Roswell, Georgia for more than 10 years.
I have a Masters of Divinity from Western Theological Seminary, where I focused on pastoral care and small group ministry. I have pastored churches in Newark, New York, San Juan Capistrano, California and Altoona, Iowa.
I have worked with a spiritual director for a number of years. When I began to address my desire to learn how I could offer spiritual direction, I wanted something that was solidly Christian and Trinitarian. With those criteria, I found that the Catholic Church, more specifically the Jesuits, have been the custodian to some of the richest resources in the world of spiritual direction. I received certification as a spiritual director at The Cenacle, Our Lady of Divine Providence. In addition, I am pursuing a Doctor of Ministry degree with a focus on Ignatian Spirituality in a pastoral ministry, and spiritual formation as a tool for discipleship, through Fuller Theological Seminary.
