"British by birth, living in America by the grace of God". I grew up in the United Kingdom and moved to the USA in early 2003. Initially it was to train as an Aircraft Maintenance Technician at a missionary training facility in Ohio. However, a 3 year training turned into a decade and a permanent resident Status. 

I met my wife - Stephanie not long after I moved to the USA and we had been active in aviation missionary service in Florida, before moving back to Ohio in 2010. We have a beautiful daughter, Anna Mae and enjoy country living and all its adventures together as a family.

I received my certified credentials with the Assemblies of God (through the Ohio Ministry Network) in 2012 and use my skills, passions and calling to serve our local community through youth and children's ministry. My passion is to serve youth and reach out to their families from there. I may not be the most organised but I dream BIG dreams and love to present the word of God in unique and creative ways - usually involving various critters and dressing up! I love people and am a firm believer in believing in, and living what the heartbeat of Christ is all about!

I serve as a staff  pastor overseeing youth & childrens ministries in Newcomerstown, Coshocton & Bridgeport Ohio. I also oversee Ministries and Discipleship on all three campus locations. 

From time to time, I also get alongside other churches to partner with and offer consultation services & joint activities with their youth ministries.
