My family has been a part of Fair Park Baptist since March 2010. As of May 2012 I have become the youth pastor for the Ignite youth group (grades 7-12) with assistance from my wife Heather and FPBC member Lyndsey Balentine.
As a child, I started in a Cumberland Presbyterian church. Then I grew up in a non-denominational church. I have even visited Methodist churches, a Church of Christ church, and I assisted in the recording of a Catholic wedding once. Eventually I went to a Free Will Baptist church where I met my wife. Now we are a part of Fair Park Baptist. The important thing I stress to everyone is that whatever is written outside the door is not what gets you into Heaven; accepting Jesus as your savior is the key.
Outside of church, I am an English teacher at Dover High School. I also love playing music. I have played the bass guitar for over twenty years. Heather is an LPN working on her RN. Our sons Logan and Connor are 3 and 2 respectively. We live in Pottsville where I have lived my entire life.
If you don't have a home church, find one. Feel free to visit Fair Park anytime. We would love to have you.
