About Me

I am the Senior Pastor of Ebenezer United Methodist Church, a 2000 member church in Stafford, Virginia.  I am passionate about helping people connect the truths of the Christian Faith to daily life. I graduated with an undergraduate degree from West Virginia Wesleyan College, and then earned my Master’s of Divinity from Wesley Theological Seminary.  Prior to serving at Ebenezer where I have been for the past 17 years, I served as a pastor in the Tidewater, Winchester and Springfield, Virginia areas.  I have been married to my wife, Lynn, for 27 years, and together we have a son who lives in Fairfax, Virginia and a daughter who lives in Richmond, Virginia. I enjoy reading, hiking, and playing with Makai, my golden retriever.

DISCLAIMER:  This is my personal blog. The opinions I express here do not necessarily represent those of the United Methodist denomination or Ebenezer Church in Stafford, Virginia.
