Transitional Senior Pastor
This year marks 40 years of pastoral ministry for me. I’ve served as an assistant pastor (Pittsburgh), solo pastor (Ligonier, PA), church planter (Williamsburg, VA), senior pastor (Pittsburgh), and for the past 8 years I’ve served EPC congregations in transition (Fresno, Indianapolis, Wichita, and St. Louis). My wife Tacey and I have three grown children and eight grandchildren. My passion for transitional ministry is clear: there is nothing I would rather do in the Lord's kingdom than walk with and serve congregations in transition.
senior associate pastor
I came to this church almost 20 years ago for one reason only. I was looking to join a church that was passionate about Christ and making the great news of the Gospel known to the world around them. In other words, I was looking for a church that knew their primary reason for existence was to benefit their non-members. I found such a church at BPC and am humbled and privileged to worship and serve with such an amazing group of people. For I have seen that no sacrifice has been too great, no risk too high, no challenge too difficult -- if it advances the life changing purposes of God for our neighbors and our region!
associate pastor - care ministry
God called me and my family to Bay Pres 10 years ago to become part of the pastoral team. The church has filled my ministry with so many wonderful opportunities to serve, to grow, and to see God's kingdom expand. I love Bay Pres for its passion for The Lord and it's passion for loving people. My family and I have been loved, prayed for, nurtured and cared for by this community with such care. I love Bay Pres because it seeks to love God and to love its neighbor in all things.
When my wife Devon and I first came to BPC we were so blessed by the passionate commitment of the church to keep Jesus the center of everything we do, to be engaged with the larger body of Christ, and to be on mission in our city, nation, and the world. Now after almost a decade of being on staff it has been proven over and over again that we are a church that truly loves the truth of God’s Word. I love being a pastor at BPC, and having a front row seat to the grace of God at work in our church family.
The thing I love about being a pastor at Bay Presbyterian Church is that working with a diverse team of gifted folks has challenged my understanding of who God is and what it means to serve him and helped me to fall in love with Christ more deeply. I also love knowing that we stand on the foundation laid by the work of some outstanding and faithful servants of Christ who came before us—we are part of a great legacy of saints at BPC.
