Special Interest: I am a former self-proclaimed atheist/agnostic, and I have an interest in apologetics. I have given several talks and sermons on apologetic topics or with apologetic elements.
Bio: Sixteen years of experience teaching high school English has equipped me to clearly communicate God’s Word to a wide audience. Several years ago, God opened the doors for me to attend seminary part-time. Since then, He has been moving me steadily towards full-time ministry and becoming a church planter. A former skeptic, I became a believer in 2005. (You can read my testimony here.) Originally from southern NJ, not far from Philadelphia, I now live with my wife and children in Metuchen, NJ, where I hope to plant a church someday.
Additional Notes: Many factors go into deciding how far I can travel and when I’m available, so if you’re interested in having me speak, please contact me. I’m looking to gain as much valuable experience as I can. In addition, any contributions to my “Seminary Fund” will be thankfully accepted.
