I was born and raised in the Buffalo area and my family has attended Calvary Heights since 1979. I came to know Jesus Christ as my Saviour at a young age. As a teenager I felt the Lord leading me to youth ministry. I met my wife, Jill at a youth conference in Rochester, New York where she grew up as a pastor's daughter and was saved at a young age. We were married in 1998 and have 3 wonderful children.
I have been working with our teenagers here at Calvary Heights since 2000. We meet for Sunday School every Sunday morning where we study God’s Word through topical and practical lessons. Our focus is to encourage our young people to establish a strong, lasting, personal relationship with the Lord that will carry them into their adult years. Our class verse is 1 Peter 5:10, “But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus...make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.” Jill and I care deeply for our young people and we are very grateful for the opportunity the Lord has given us to minister to them. Our desire is for each of our young people to be established, strengthened and settled in their walk with the Lord.
Along with meeting for Sunday School, we have monthly activities, both spiritual and recreational. We have a monthly Youth Night every 4th Wednesday of the month here at the church.
