His greatest delights have been seeing people changed by the power of the gospel. Pastor enjoys time with the family, as well as outdoor sports like hunting, fishing and biking the rail trail. He has even been known to swing the golf clubs on rare occasions. Yankees, Cowboys, Penn State …

Pastor will always be grateful to the Lord for Calvary …it’s a great place to be.
