About Me


I am the Associate Pastor of First United Methodist Church of Toms River, New Jersey, and a Member In Discernment in the United Church of Christ. I am also a Ph.D. candidate at University of Aberdeen, studying practical theology with John Swinton (Aberdeen) and Andrew Root (Luther Seminary). I received an M.A. in Christian Education and an M.Div. from Princeton Theological Seminary in 2016.
I live in Toms River with my wonderful wife, Amanda, and our two incredible children, Henry and Bonnie. I am passionate about Youth Ministry and passionate about theology... and I am convinced that the two belong to each other.
