Minister of Music
I serve Stephens Valley Church as assistant pastor and minister of music. I have been a church musician for more than 40 years. I graduated from Moody Bible Institute in 1975, received my B.A. from Olivet College in 1977 and myM.M.E. from Winthrop University in 1991. I have served at Highland Park Baptist in Southfield, MI, Calvary Church and Christ Covenant Presbyterian in Charlotte, NC, Grace Presbyterian in Peoria, IL, and Covenant Presbyterian in Nashville. I joined the staff at Stephens Valley Church in January 2017. My wife Kathleen and I have been married for more than 35 years and have four children, three grown and one in college. When I'm not serving the church, I like to spend time in my woodworking shop and I love to cook.
