I was born in Queens, New York to a middle-class family. My Parents moved the family to Stony Brook, and from there to Miller Place. I graduated from Port Jefferson High School and went on to attend Heidelberg College where I acquired a BA in music.
During my college experience I became a Christian and was active in campus ministry. My college sweetheart and I married had two sons, and have enjoyed our 48 years together. In those early years I answered a call to ministry.
As a Pastor, I have seen all aspects of life from births to deaths and everything in-between. I have worked in the marketplace and in the factory. I understand what people go through to support a family. Earning a living while going through seminary I worked in the tool & die industry. Planting a church while being a student, working fulltime and writing my thesis, we successfully planted a church in Holland, Michigan. My skills of organization, management, and scholastic enterprises has given me and exceptional grasp of subjects.
For more than forty years, I have been teaching life applications from God's word, Natural Law Theory, as well as the United States Constitution, The Bill of Rights and History. As an ordained minister I have pastored churches in Michigan and New York as well as teach internationally.
I have spoken at conferences, college campuses, and debates concerning various issues and Christian perspectives. I am well known for my ability to explain complex subjects on a level all can understand. Exposing life issues to scripture, I bring thoughtful insight and guidance through biblical solutions.
I am a graduate of Ashland Theological Seminary and was the director of Albany Area Biblical Counseling. Currently I serve as the Pastor at Restoration Christian Community in Allegan Michigan, where my wife and I have resided for the last twelve years. I am member of the Evangelical Theological Society, the Evangelical Philosophical Society, The Thomas Torrance Fellowship and President of the Bonhoeffer Form for Church and Culture.
