OUR PASTORS &
God in His love and mercy, has allowed us the opportunity to serve and be part of a wonderful Christ-centered church family here at Dover Alliance Church. My wife, Becky, and I also consider it a real privilege to serve the people of Dover, New Philadelphia, and the surrounding communities of Tuscarawas County.
God has given us three wonderful kids: Jessica, Laura, and Michael. They keep our lives fun, interesting, and certainly far from dull.
God moved me from a twenty year career in sales to full time ministry in 2009. I am excited to be working with a great team of Pastors, Elders, and ministry leaders here at Dover Alliance Church.
Youth & Families
I joined the staff at Dover Alliance as Youth Pastor in 2008 after receiving my Master of Divinity from Alliance Theological Seminary. Both my wife and I love investing our time and energy into the lives of young people. In 2016, I transitioned into an Associate Pastor position not only continuing to work with youth, but also young families, small groups, and technology.
I married Sara in June of 2006. We have three amazing and loud children: Avery, Gabe and Kobi. We love watching our kids grow and enjoy life. We also love hanging out with friends and family along with playing games and
