I was born in Neptune, NJ and when I was in second grade my family moved to Manasquan, NJ where I grew up. I was saved in 1981 at this church but at the time it was called the Baptist Tabernacle. My wife Tracy and I were married at the church in 1982. Our son Jim was born in 1984. I served as a deacon for several years and then became an elder when Pastor Randy came to the church. I also lead a small group in our home. I enjoy spending time with my wife, son, daughter-in-law, and grandson.
