I was born and raised in Syracuse, New York. I am blessed to have a wonderful, godly wife who has always supported me. I also have two grown daughters and a son-in-law that love the Lord. I served at Grace Chapel in Skaneateles, N.Y. for 30 years both as an elder and men’s ministry. I was always encouraging men to be the spiritual leaders that God intends them to be. A group of 8-10 men met every Thursday around our dining room table for prayer and study before we all went to our jobs. I’m thrilled to say that these men have now formed their groups and duplicated God’s plan.

After my career in sales and management, I retired to Huntersville with my wife Vicki and began my “new” career with Starbucks in Birkdale Village. God has given me an opportunity almost every single day to glorify Him in this job. I am always amazed at what He does when we are willing to be used.

My desire is for men to be unified in Christ. As the Men’s Director for LIFE Fellowship my goal is to help each man realize that living a godly life is very rewarding. In addition, we need the strength of other brothers in Christ, coming alongside each other to glorify Him. I have found that men enjoying a shared activity or just a simple cup of coffee can lead to some powerful conversations where relationships can develop.
