Although I grew up in a Christian home and attended church weekly with my extended family, I drifted far from the Lord during my college years. Nearly two decades later, as my wife Joyce and I were grieving the death of our first child, we were led back to our childhood faith through God’s gentle grace.
Shortly thereafter, I received a call to leave my career as a marine biologist and enter seminary. I was ordained to the Priesthood in 1994 and consecrated as a Missionary Bishop in 2008 to provide spiritual oversight to 30 churches throughout Florida, Georgia, and Alabama.
In honoring one of my life verses, “I am not ashamed of the Gospel…” (Romans 1:16), I continue to proclaim the Good News of Christ by helping Christians mature in their faith and those who know not Jesus meet the living Lord.
What excites me most about Christ Church is the willingness of its members to be stretched by God that we might become the best church we can be for Vero Beach and beyond.
Joyce and I have been married for 44 years; we have three adult children, Paul, Kimberly, and David.
