GOALS FOR JENNERSTOWN UM CHURCH
To become a dynamic body of believers that makes a difference in the Jennerstown area. For our church body to realize that our ministry is about “them” not us. For growth to continue to occur as we learn the Bible and make it effective, relevant and applicable to our daily lives. His passion is to lead and equip others to live a life of integrity in following Jesus Christ.

MOST PROUD ACCOMPLISHMENT
Above all, to be able to partner with my bride of 38 years as we raised our children to love and serve Jesus Christ. In “2nd place” would be the privilege given to me to preach and teach the Word of God in the local church setting.

FAVORITE SAYING
“Remember who you are!”
