In 1977 God gave me a companion in my life journey when I was joined in marriage to my wife, Carol. She has been my partner in ministry, and for over 40 years I have seen the world through her eyes.
We are the proud parents of a son and daughter. They have blessed us with three grandchildren. I have had the privilege of serving God’s children in Chambersburg, Belleville, Dallastown, York, and Winterstown. In 2011 I was honored to be one of the contributors to the book “Speaking Out: Gifts for Ministry Undeterred by Disabilities”. My interests outside the church include traveling with Carol, gardening, and wood carving.
What's the most challenging part about your job?
I have found my greatest challenge in ministry to be constantly seeking to share the love of our Savior, Jesus Christ; in a way that is relevant to the people God has given me to serve. Computer technology, the increased use of audio and video in the worship service, social networking, and rapid changes in our global society have become a vital part of sharing the Good News and living out our Lord’s commandment to love one another.
What gifts have you seen God working through you?
As I continue to walk the paths on which God leads me, I have come to appreciate God’s gifts of openness to change, patience, leadership, and preaching. I pray that God will continue to use these gifts as I follow the Apostle Paul’s instruction to “walk by faith and not by sight.”
