I am a native of the greater Rochester NY area. A 3rd generation pastor, and have been at ECF since 1974 - although pastor only since 1996. I am married to the wonderful Sky (formerly Rector) of Fort Wroth Tx, and have one daughter, Sarah. We have 2 spectacular grandchildren, Sam & Hannah. And we are privileged to have our Son-in-law, Daughter and grand kids with us in the Church. I traveled for 8.5 years with the Mark IV Gospel Quartet and thought that was going to be my life. When that changed I entered corporate America, in various sales positions, writing and producing radio and television ads, and finally as National Sales Manager for a company covering the US, Caribbean, Central & South America. I've a published book on ministry with Christian Focus publications, and have served on the National Boards of F.I.R.E., Setting Captives Free, and Soli Deo Publications.
