Welcome! I have served as an Ordained Elder in the Florida United Methodist Church since 1988.
My focus is overseeing and supporting our ongoing care for our folks needing encouragement and support as when going through transitions and challenges due to health and aging, as well as relational difficulties. We developed our Stephen Ministry to train and support those among us gifted to also serve as encouragers and helpers for those in times of need.
Besides serving as a part-time Connections pastor with our congregation, I work full-time as a licensed marriage and family therapist with Restoration Counseling in Jacksonville, a private practice I established in 2013.
I am blessed to be married to Debbie and together we have 2 sons (Andrew and Taylor), and 2 daughters-in-law (Christin and Rachel). We live in the Mandarin area of Jacksonville.
