The metaphor that most defines me as a Christian is God’s giving sight to the blind. I was a willfully blind sinner whom God graciously rescued from the power of Satan’s lies. I am so very grateful that he opened my eyes to confront my sinfulness and see, in all its stark and beautiful contrast, the Gospel of Jesus. Since the day he rescued me from my suppression of the gospel, he hasn’t ceased to surprise and change me with his truth. Thank you God for your indescribable gift! (Acts 26:18)
I’ve trained in various places.
I have an undergrad in Church Music and an MA in Bible, an MDiv from Detroit Baptist Theological Seminary, and just finished my ThM at Westminster Theological Seminary. I’m also slowly pursuing certification at the Christian Counseling and Education Foundation (CCEF).
And I also serve/work in my local church and community.
I was in pastoral work for about 4 years in MI then served for 5 years as an assistant pastor and audio/visual coordinator for Calvary Baptist Church in Lansdale, PA. During that time I also served as a chaplain for the 111FW in the Air National Guard, stationed near Willow Grove, PA. I now serve as a full-time chaplain on active duty in the Air Force which includes pastoring one of the congregations that meets in the military chapel as well providing counseling and spiritual assistance to airmen and their families.
