My Story

I became a follower of Jesus at 11 years old. After a few rebellious and destructive teenage years, God restored my life and relationships with family, and I felt called to minister to students. I interned under the youth pastor of a church in Tonawanda for 2 years, and became the youth pastor, during which time I married Laura. After Pastoring there for 2 years, Laura and I moved to South Central Pennsylvania where we served as Pastor of Student Ministries for 1 ½ years. Our first child (Hudson) was born there. Shortly after that we decided to move back to our hometown, Buffalo NY so that our children could be raised with our extended family close by. One month later, we were offered a job at The Chapel, and didn’t hesitate to say yes! We are loving every minute of being a part of such a great church family and look forward to what God will do in and through us in this region now, and in the future.
