Founding Pastor of Bridgeport Apostolic Church.  I was raised in an Episcopal Church.  After joining the army in 1957 I became interested in more of God and began to listen to the witnessing of an army buddy.  I received the Holy Ghost in an army barracks in Nuremburg, Germany.  After finishing my tour of duty I came home to Albany, New York.  In 1961 I was introduced to baptism in Jesus Name and I was baptized.  I became a member of Apostolic Pentecostal Church pastored by S.R. Hanby.  Feeling a call to start a church, my pastor encouraged me to go to Troy, NY.  It was in Troy where we began our first Home Missions church.

I have over 37 years experience pastoring.  I have been a student of the Bible for 49 years and I have continuously taken courses to further my knowledge.  I have taken Excell Bible School courses and Apostolic Leadership Bible training sponsored by the CT District.  During my time as pastor in Connecticut I took a Clinical Pastoral Education course with Bridgeport Hospital.  I became a certified CPE counselor.

My experience on the District level is as follows:
• District Board Presbyter 3 years
• Foreign Mission Director for district 2 years

My wife and I have been happily married for 45 years.  We have two wonderful children, both married,  and  five grandchildren.
