I am originally from Chambersburg, Pennsylvania and came to North Carolina to play baseball at Wingate University.  There I met, my wife, Kellie, who is from Rockingham, NC.  I majored in Business Administration with emphasis in Accounting and a minor in Religion.  While at Wingate, God was calling me into the ministry to be a pastor.  I attended Duke Seminary to obtain a Masters of Divinity.  While serving Lea's Chapel UMC as a Student-pastor, Kellie and I got married in 2005.  Kellie graduated from East Carolina University with a Master’s in School Counseling and she is now an Elementary School Counselor .  After graduating from Duke Divinity School, I was appointed to Hawthorne Lane UMC as an Associate Pastor, where I led the youth and young adult ministries. After 3 years, I was then appointed to Troutman 1st UMC to revitalize the church. While at Troutman 1st, God graciously answered our prayers by blessing us with a little girl, Mia.  This past year, we were blessed with another little girl, Hannah.  However, Hannah only lived 5 months before going to be with Jesus.  We have been blessed through this journey with so many prayers.  These precious girls have made us realize a deeper kind of love that we had no idea existed. God has done some amazing things in our lives and we are excited to see what plans God has for our family and the family of Mt. Holly 1st UMC as God has called me to serve the community of Mt. Holly.  Take care and God bless,
