Called to serve

I grew up in central Pennsylvania, in a small town called McClure. Ever since I was a young boy, I’ve had a deep love for the church.

After graduating high school, I attended Millersville University of Pennsylvania, where I majored in German and minored in Latin and Economics. During my time at Millersville, I availed himself of the opportunity to study abroad at the Philipps-Universität in Marburg, Germany. After graduating college, I attended the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia, where I focused my studies on Bible and worship leadership.

I has served in Ohio, Pennsylvania, and now in Massachusetts. Ordained on December 5, 2015, I currently am called to serve as pastor at Emanuel Lutheran Church in Fitchburg, Massachusetts.
Preaching and worship are two of my greatest passions.

I have a vision for Christian discipleship rooted in God’s Word—in preaching and teaching and most importantly in the sacraments. It excites me to accompany the people of God as they to grow in faith through the Word and go out into the world to serve.
