Originally from Chambersburg, Pennsylvania, where he came to North Carolina to play baseball at Wingate University, where he also met his wife, Kellie, who is from Rockingham, NC.  His major at Wingate was Business Administration with emphasis in Accounting and a minor in Religion.  While at Wingate, God was calling him into the ministry to be a pastor.  He attended Duke Seminary to obtain his Masters of Divinity.  While serving Lea's Chapel UMC as a Student-pastor, he got married in 2005. His wife graduated from ECU with a Master’s in School Counseling and she is now a School Counselor .  After he graduated from Duke, he was appointed to Hawthorne Lane UMC as an Associate Pastor, where he led the youth and young adult ministries. He was then appointed to Troutman 1st UMC to revitalize the church. Three and half years ago, God graciously answered he and his wife's prayer by blessing them with two sweet little girls.  The girls have made them realize a deeper kind of love that they had no idea existed. God has done some amazing things in their life and they are excited to see what plans God has for their family and the family of Mt. Holly 1st UMC as God has called him to serve.
