Dear Jackson Baptist Church Family,
I am both honored and excited to introduce myself as your new pastor here at JBC. My journey in ministry has been a remarkable one, beginning with my 11 years of service at Line Baptist Church in a small town named Foster, Rhode Island. There my deepest passion was to inspire worship of Christ with every aspect of our lives, giving Him all the glory. I want you to know that this passion remains steadfast as I join you at JBC. Together, we will continue to seek God's presence, grow in faith, and serve this wonderful community, always with the aim of bringing honor and glory to our Savior.
My personal journey with Jesus began on Wednesday, February 9, 1994, during a youth meeting in Niagara Falls, NY, where I fully placed my trust in Him as my Saviour. On Sunday, April 7, 1996, I underwent believers' baptism, publicly professing my faith. About Six and a half years later, on Tuesday, September 10, 2002, I received my calling to gospel ministry while I was driving to FedEx Trade Networks that day for work. I remember very specifically having a heavy spirit. I began to pray and tell the Lord how much I believe in Him, and that I give my life to Him. As simple as it may seem, this was a very powerful moment that altered the course of my life completely. This led me to attend Bible College, where I had the incredible blessing of meeting my lovely wife, Leslie. God has seen it fit to bless us with four precious children.
With a heart full of gratitude and anticipation, I look forward to walking this faith journey with you all, as we continue to uplift the name of Jesus and bring His love to our community. I believe God has GREAT things in store for our church family.
In His service,
