I have served as Senior Pastor here at Dillon Road since June 1, 2016. After graduating from Piedmont International University in 2010 with an M.A. in Biblical Studies, I served as the pastor at a church in Lexington, NC for 5 years.
My passion is to see the church Reach – Teach – Preach.
In other words, the church is to Reach Out to the community, Reach Into our community of faith, Teach and Train Disciples, and Preach the Gospel to the world.
My wife, my daughter and I live in Winston-Salem.
My family and I have been serving God with this bunch of believers since 2000. It’s been great serving them and working together with them.
Having sensed a calling on my life at the young age of 7, I gave God my heart and have sought to follow our Lord in every area of my life. As a teenager, I began singing and working with both youth and adult choirs. As I sensed the Spirit’s directing me, I have pursued the ministry calling of a Worship Pastor, and have been ordained as such into the ministry.
My wife, Trish and I, have 3 grown children, and 4 grandchildren. God is good!
Originally from Philadelphia, PA, I now consider North Carolina home. (I still bleed Philadelphia Flyers orange and black though!) My wife Christine and I have three daughters and five granddaughters. I graduated from Liberty University with a BS degree in Biblical Studies, and really love teaching kids about how the Bible relates to their actual life. Yard work, hockey, college football, and grandkids are my non-church interests.
I came on board as Executive Assistant in May, 2017. After a 25-year career in Preschool Education, I served as Administrative Assistant to a former church for five years, and am now very happy to be serving this church family in Jamestown. As a mom, grandmom, teacher, writer, and church staff, my focus is always on Jesus and living in a manner worthy of Him.
