From a very early age I knew I wanted to serve the Lord with my life in ministry. My dad is a pastor, my grandfather is a pastor, my other grandfather worked for C.E.F. in Pennsylvania, I was surrounded by men who were passionate about Gods Word and the Gospel. I received Christ as my Savior at four years old and it was when I was nine while at Camp Good News that I first felt God speaking to my heart saying “you will serve Me.” It was many years later that I realized that the man who prayed with me after chapel as a little boy was Allen George, the former president of C.E.F. International.
Camp Good News and C.E.F. was part of my life very early on as my sister would attend as a camper each year and C.E.F. Summer Missionaries would come to lead VBS at my home church in Wells. Since being able to be a camper at eight, I have gone back every year as either a camper, C.Y.I.A student, or staff. It was during one year at C.Y.I.A. that I felt God leading me into C.E.F. ministry. After spending a year away at Bible College in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, I felt God leading me back to C.E.F. of Maine and in October of 2011 I came on staff. My wife Jenny and I both served on staff in C.E.F. of Southern Maine before Jenny stepped into the role of full-time mom when our first daughter was born in 2016. I have served as the local director for the Southern Maine chapter since January of 2015. We currently live in South Portland where our tiny house is just right for Jenny and I, our two little girls, and a very fat cat.
