I was born and raised in Ocean County, NJ, and attended church since I was born. My faith became a serious part of my life in high school, and after graduating from college in Tennessee and getting married in Texas, my wife Alexis and I moved back up here to begin our teaching careers. We started attending Grace the beginning of 2014, and have grown greatly in our walks under the leadership and mentoring through the church. I have enjoyed serving in various youth, sports, and small group ministries over the years, and now head up the Widows care role for the Deacons. We have three daughters and a son, and the six of us enjoy board games, road tripping, hiking, and spending time with our friends who encourage us in our walk with the Lord.
