Although a few generations of my family were born and raised in the Hickory-Bethlehem area, I was born and raised in Pennsylvania mostly. Born in Phoenixville west of Philadelphia, I went to elementary school in Williamsport (home of the Little League). I spent Jr High in Silver Spring MD, my Junior year in Middletown NJ and graduated from North Alleghany H.S. is Pittsburgh, PA. I have an Associate degree in Architecture, earned from the Williamsport Area Community College. I met my wife (for the second time, we knew each other as kids, went to the same church and school) during this 2-year stay in town. I transferred to Penn State and received a B.S. in Agronomy. I graduated from the Theological Seminary at Gettysburg in 1982 and have served 4 rural, small town congregations in south central Pennsylvania, one a mission congregation in the NALC, before coming to Shiloh. Kathy and I have been married for 38 years. We have no children, but have enjoyed the children at our churches and our nieces and nephews.
