I was born in central PA and, from the earliest days, has yearned for a deep connection with God, which initially led him to attend Cairn University for a B.S. in Bible. At Cairn, I met my wife, Jen, and we have two beautiful daughters. After getting married, we attended seminary together at Talbot School of Theology in Southern California. I completed a M.Div. focusing on Spiritual Formation and a Th.M. in New Testament. From seminary, God brought us to Pittsburgh for me to get a Ph.D. in Systematic Theology program at Duquesne University, where I focused on the theology of the atonement for my dissertation. In 2016, I was called as the Assistant Pastor at North Park Church and have been overseeing various ministries at the church, including Missions, Outreach, Care Groups, Men’s Ministry, and Compass. In my spare time, I enjoy being outdoors and reading.
