I oversee our Caring Ministries which includes hospital and shut-in visitation, funerals, counseling, benevolent fund, prayer connection and baptism. I also oversee our Connection Ministry which includes the Get to Know, Membership Matters and 6 Steps to Loving your Church classes. As well as our Greeters, Connection Center workers and Ushers, I lead the over-all process of guiding first time guests in the assimilation process through church membership.
I was born and raised and have always lived in the Valley. It is a great place to call home, and I am humbled to have the opportunity to share the Gospel and minister to my hometown. I received Christ as a preteen and have grown in a relationship with Him through His Word, along with the trials and tribulations of life.
I have been part of Old North Church since 1979 and graduated from Canfield High School in 1987. My wife, Geri, and I have been married since 1990, and we have four children: Rebecca, Ricky, Shelby and Faith. I sensed the move into ministry after dealing with the deaths of two of our daughters, Shelby and Faith.
