About My Family

Faith and I have been married since June 1996 and have three children: Dorie, Matthew and Elijah. Our family moved to Maine in August 2008. We are originally from upstate New York, but served in churches in Massachusetts, New York and Maine. I first started serving as a pastor in March 2004 and transitioned into full-time ministry in August 2008. I am currently working toward receiving an M.Div. degree from Faith Bible Seminary in Lafayette, Ind.

About My Church Plant

God first placed the call in our hearts to plant Twin Villages Church in June 2016. In June 2017, almost a year to the day later, we held our first worship service. Our goal, by God's grace, is to build a church family in one of the least reached regions of the United States. We strive to build community based on the gospel of Jesus and to see people come to faith in Jesus. Twin Villages Church exists to grow in Christ, love like Christ, and live for Christ.

NAMB Church Planting

Demonstrated Christian character is essential for missionaries and chaplains to gain credibility and build community. A missionary is a person who, in response to God's call and gifting, leaves his or her comfort zone and crosses cultural, geographic or other barriers to proclaim the gospel and live out a Christian witness in obedience to the Great Commission. The North American Mission Board supports missionaries serving across the United States, Canada and their territories. Churches are the missionary incubators and sending centers for missionaries through the Southern Baptist Convention. Missionaries serve in a variety of settings and face tremendous challenges. But the rewards are tremendous and life-changing. Missionaries have the privilege to represent their church and their Father in sharing the gospel as the primary focus of their activity. If you are interested in pursuing next steps as a potential missionary or chaplain from your church, explore the possibilities at
