Personal Bio: I have been happily married to Michelle since 2006, and we live in Lowell, MA. We spend a lot of time hanging out with friends, enjoy the warmer summer months and vacationing in warmer climates. Michelle also runs her own flower design business, www.michellebdesign.com, designing arrangements for weddings and events. We have two daughters, Joanna, born in 2012 and Meredith, born in 2014 and two cats named Frank and Beatrice. Before my full time role at Grace Community Iworked bi-vocationally for a number of years in landscaping.

 

Ministry Bio: I spent time in Rochester, NY while receiving an AAS in Photographic Illustration from Rochester Institute of Technology and attended a church that awoke in me a love for worship. When I came home I joined the worship team at Grace. Eventually I took over as Worship and Communications Director, and what began as a hobby turned into a full-time ministry experience. In 2010 I received a BA from Northeastern University in Management. As God continued to challenge me and provide different learning and growth opportunities, my role transitioned into oversight of all operations at Grace Community. In my role as Executive Pastor, I oversee the operations of the church: strategic implementation, facilities, staff management and Adult Ministries. I am currently pursuing a Masters of Divinity at Fuller Theological Seminary.
