Favorite Scripture/Quote:

  • "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." - Jeremiah 29:11

  • "I am not a smart man, but I know what love is." - Forrest Gump

Hobbies/Interests: Spending time with family, bicycling, sports, fishing, and eating.

Why FPCLY?: There is an energy and excitement that is a product of the Holy Spirit in the community and the congregation and our family looks forward to being a part of the congregation as we learn, live, and love in service to the Lord and God's people.

Did You Know: I went to seminary three times over 10 years, twice to Columbia (1998, 2000) and finally Union (2006) while trying to discern the call to ministry.  The Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.
