I grew up in a family of five children on a farm in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. I was blessed to have a Christian family and gave my life to Christ at 12 years of age. I came to Columbus, Ohio to attend DeVry Institute of Technology and after graduation began a career as a software developer with AT&T (now Alcatel-Lucent). I married Donna, who is also from Lancaster County, in April 1988, and we began our life together in central Ohio. We, along with our two sons and three daughters, began attending JBC in 2003. We count it a privilege to worship here at JBC with our family, including the spouses of our three married children.I have served in small group leadership and in leadership support in our former church and here at JBC and have served on the Finance Advisory Team.
A verse that I have been focusing on recently is Psalm 50:23a (NLT), "But giving thanks is a sacrifice that truly honors me."
