I grew up on a dairy farm in north central Pennsylvania. God saved me at the age of 5 at a county fair, and eventually led me to Baptist Bible College (now Clarks Summit University). After completing my undergraduate work, I continued on for a Masters at Baptist Bible Seminary. I met Amy Terrell while in college, and in 1998 God gave me the privilege to marry her.
I served 10 years as a youth pastor and 10 years as an associate pastor before God leading me to serve here at Calvary Baptist in Chillicothe. We have 4 children – one a student at Cedarville, and the other three still home with us.
I’m excited to see what God wants to do through our church, and look forward to working together to show His love and declare His truth through His people here at Calvary.
