I joined the Aldersgate UMC team in the summer of 2019. I have served two prior appointments at Riverton UMC and Culpeper UMC. Aldersgate is a wonderful church with lots of great missions, ministries, small groups, and great people who love God, each other, and their neighbors.

I enjoy meeting people and watching them grow in faith, mission, and ministry using their gifts and talents. I enjoy leadership training and development and helping to build teams where people work together collaboratively for good. I enjoy being part of mission work, spending time outdoors, and being with my family.


I am married to Lee Anne and we have 2 grown sons and 3 grandsons. We lost our daughter, Kelsey, in 2008 in a car accident. We enjoy traveling to adventurous places, hiking, and spending some quiet time at our little cottage on Gwynn’s Island on the Chesapeake Bay.


I am so blessed to be serving here at Aldersgate with a great staff and Leadership team. Come join us and let’s grow together.

I am excited to join Aldersgate UMC as of July 2021. I previously served Beulah UMC in Richmond for three years as the associate pastor. Prior to that appointment, I spent time at Duke Divinity School getting my Master of Divinity degree. In ministry, I am passionate about creating new forms of church through Fresh Expression ministries and seeing God move in the community.


I am married to my wife, Vanessa, and we are the proud parents of our dog Toto. I enjoy spending time outdoors hiking, mountain biking, and viewing wildlife. I am a native of Nebraska and an avid sports fan.


I am grateful to join what God is doing at Aldersgate.
