In March of 2018 I was invited to go to Israel with the Members 0f Mt. Vernon Baptist Church.  The bond was so strong that upon returning I started driving from Pittsburgh on a weekly basis to attend services.  After six months of driving, I relocated to WV and became a member in May of 2019.  In September of 2019 I was Licensed to Preach the Gospel and in September of 2020 I became the Director of our Young Adult ministry called Transitions.  Simultaneously, I accepted a pastoral internship while pursuing my ordination through the WV American Baptist Association.  Most of my career has been spent in the area of youth and young adult ministry.  I love young people immensely and nothing gives me greater joy than seeing them thrive in Christ.  It is my joy to serve this church and I can’t wait to see the great things He has in store for us
