Susan and I feel blessed and are excited to be in ministry with the wonderful “People of Grace on Harbison!” Our heart’s desire is to encourage, equip, and enable people to respond to God’s call on their lives as we grow in love of God and neighbor together. Susan and I are both natives of South Carolina having lived in the Upstate most of our lives. An Ordained Elder, I have been serving as pastor of Grace UMC since January of 2016, previously, having served in the Greenville District since 2002. I received my BA from the University of South Carolina Upstate and a Master of Divinity from Erskine Theological Seminary. I have one daughter, Amanda, which lives in Marion, NC.
Susan and I enjoy traveling and camping in our RV while spending time together in God’s beautiful creation and meeting new friends. My passions include sunrises, sunsets, fly fishing for trout, kayak fishing, hiking, and watching football games with Susan. Susan has a music ministry and is an instructor for a nonprofit, Preserving Our Southern Appalachian Music. Hank, our Siberian Husky and Ibby, our cat bring added joy to our lives.
