Personal Bio: I am the second of five children, grew up in Danvers, MA, (a North Shore suburb of Boston), and have lived in New England all my life (in Mass all but about two years). I attended UMass, Amherst, where I met and married my wife, Cathy. God has blessed us with three children, and one grandchild (so far). For the past 33 years, I have worked for MIT Lincoln Laboratory in computer chip research. Now, after going to seminary, I am transitioning to vocational ministry. Family is very important, and I enjoy our annual camping vacation in Maine with extended family.
Ministry Bio: Since Giving my life to Christ in high school, I have spent most of my life serving God in various ways. I have served in churches as a lay leader in almost every position there is, from trustee to deacon/elder, from junior high youth group leader to missions committee. When I was in my early forties (mid-life crisis?) I felt the need to spend the rest of my life in work of eternal value. I started attending seminary part-time, and after 12 years finally graduated with an mDiv. from Bethel Seminary of the East. During the seminary years, I served as a pastoral intern, first at Grace Community, then at The Evangelical Congregational Church of Tyngsboro. This latest lap around the track has brought me to Grace Community again. My passion is building community - building up the people of God so that they are mature in Christ and equipped for ministry. We got your back!
