About My Family

I was born and raised in central Pennsylvania. I have been married to my high school sweetheart, Michelle, for 28 years. I am the father of seven: Faith (26), Elizabeth (22), Brandt (21), Justin (21), Joseph (20), Morgan (20) and Kenny (17). We have been blessed to have had the privilege of adopting four of our seven kids.

We moved to Bradenton, Fla., in 2014 after serving at East Shore Baptist Church in Harrisburg, Pa., for 14 years. I enjoy spending time with my adult children and helping them move out. Michelle and I enjoy riding bikes together and doing projects around our home.

About My Ministry

Currently I serve as the corporate chaplain for PGT Innovations in Venice, Fla. Also, I serve on the staff of Woodland Community Church as the pastor of adult education. My ministry focus is on biblical counseling and financial coaching.

PGT offers a number of employee benefits that help team members in a time of financial need, and we have purposed to provide financial coaching to go along with these programs with the hope this will help bring about life-altering change in the lives of our team members. I also have the privilege of driving servant leadership training throughout PGT. I travel to all our locations—Miami, Orlando, Phoenix and Venice—and facilitate 21 Laws of Leadership for all our frontline leaders.

SBC Chaplaincy

Chaplaincy is a vital frontline ministry and extension of the local church. Chaplains reach the lost among the thousands of men and women in the U.S. Armed Forces, correctional facilities, healthcare settings, public safety, disaster relief sites and corporate environments. SBC Chaplains care for the broken, offer hope to the hopeless and advance the gospel of Jesus Christ in hard to reach places.
The qualifications expected of a Southern Baptist applying for endorsement as a chaplain or counselor are established by the using agency and the Chaplains Commission, SBC. These qualification requirements vary according to the type of chaplaincy or counseling ministry involved but all are expected to meet a high level of ministerial competence.


Pray for boldness to share the gospel and open hearts among the people to whom I minister. Pray for people to come to saving faith in Jesus. Pray for more to become missionaries and chaplains.


Commit to long-term prayer support. Explore the opportunities to extend the reach of your church by becoming a chaplain. Be involved in supporting chaplains and their families. Send notes of encouragement. Talk with a chaplain about his or her ministry context. Send resources that support a chaplain's ministry context. Pray for chaplains and their families.
Many missionaries build a team to join their ministry in prayer, participation, and provision. These friends, family and churches support missionaries beyond the tithes and offerings given within the church plant. Visit for NAMB's policy on providing for church plants.
