Owen Shields confirmed me and Rev.Bill Hess and the Rev.Ed Donner inspired and encouraged me to enter the ministry and were my mentors while I was in Seminary and after I was appointed in the Western Pa. conference.My education included Kiski Area Sr.High school in Leechburg,Pa.;Clarion Univ.of Pa. with a B.S. in Elem.Education and United Theological Seminary in Dayton,Ohio in 1981.Rev.Bill Hess and Rev.Ed Donner used me to preach,teach,and do some pastoral visits at various times during the year to give me a taste of what church ministry was during my high school and college years.My appointment record is recorded in various journals in the Western Pa. conference I'm sure.My current family includes my wife Audrey,two grown sons Ben and Josh ,grandson Christian,and my Goldendoodle Marley.My personal interests include being a Pittsburgh sports fan,reading.,my family,my personal relationship with God and the Lord Jesus.
