Bio

I have been serving in campus ministry with Christian Student Fellowship (CSF) at Penn State Berks since June, 2005. In 2016 I took on the role of Staff Development Coordinator for CSFPA, which means I provide coaching and additional training for our campus ministers around the state. In 2020 I was named Assistant Executive Director, working closely with our Executive Director.

This past spring I decided, after much prayer and thought, to take a step back from campus ministry. I am moving from full-time to part-time with CSF. This means I will be giving up some of the roles mentioned above.

In the spring I began a new job at the Berks Community Health Center as Donor Relations Associate. I am excited for this new opportunity.

I graduated from Penn State University and Lincoln Christian Seminary.  Lincoln Christian Seminary is part of  the Christian Church/Church of Christ, a family of churches whose distinctive is to seek Christian unity (i.e. to be Christians only…of course, not the only Christians).  While serving as a youth minister during seminary, I was ordained in this family of churches.  CSF is affiliated with this heritage.  I grew up in the Evangelical Congregational (EC) Church, a denomination that grew out of Methodists and the Holiness Movement.  Until I left for college, this denomination was my greatest spiritual influence.  Upon entering campus ministry I was commissioned as a missionary in the EC Church.  Both of these traditions have shaped me and I am proud of my affiliation with each and their continued support of my ministry.

Emily and I have been married since March 25, 2006. We have two children – Junia and Elijah – and one dog – Johnny.
