My path to ministry at Wooster Church – The path for me to Wooster Church is an amazing testimony to how good God is! I grew up at Wooster Church. All throughout the years I have been a part of the church and specifically was very involved during my High School years in the youth group. During those years, Pastor Ben and Pastor Joel had identified and confirmed in my life that God was calling me to ministry. Despite their encouragements (and others) I decided to attend Malone College in the Fall of 2006 as an English major! I was running from God and His plans for my life because of a fear of the unknown. During my sophomore year, God got ahold of my heart, and I changed my major to Youth/Educational Ministry and completed my undergrad degree at Malone in 2010. Shortly after that I married my beautiful wife, and moved to Warren Ohio. I worked at a metal fabrication shop for 2 years, ran my own painting business for about 8 months, and in the 2.5 years from 2012 until my arrival here on staff at Wooster Church, I was in full-time ministry at a church called “The Movement” in Niles Ohio. When I changed my major in college in 2007, my dream was to work at Wooster Church, and now nearly 10 years later, God has made that possible. I could not be more excited to be HOME!
What I like best about working at Wooster Church is – Working with a Family! Being on staff with so many loving people is an incredible experience. It’s an honor to be able to do what God has called me to do with some of the best people I know!
