I grew up in Northeastern Ohio and attended Grove City College (B.S. Finance). After a short stint in the business world, I studied theology (M.Div), married the lovely Abigail, became a youth minister and then solo pastor at churches in Western Pennsylvania. In 2006, I started Matthias Media, a non-profit publishing ministry with its roots in Sydney, Australia. In 2009, Abby and I along with our growing family moved back to the Youngstown area. I have served at Old North since 2011. Serving with two ministries and with four active children, there is little time (or desire) for much else. But if I do have some spare time, I enjoy watching the Cleveland Indians or a history documentary, walking in the woods and figuring out ways to carry heavy objects.
At Old North, I oversee adult education and training. We aim to build biblical fellowship by joining people together to sit under God’s Word in groups, classes, and seminars. We want to encourage as much organic discipleship as possible by equipping people to read and reflect upon Scripture with others. Old North is a wonderful place to grow in our understanding of the gospel of Jesus Christ so that we all, when together and when separate, bear fruit (Colossians 1:9-10), become more zealous for good works (Titus 2:14) and adorn the gospel (Titus 2:9).
