Teaching: We've Been Given this Ministry

Pastor of Youth & Young Adult Ministries at Harrisburg Brethren in Christ Church

I am from Southeast, Washington DC, spent most of my life raised in Maryland, but then moved back to DC about three years ago. I grew up in a baptist church, surrendered my life to Jesus during my late elementary school years and then recommitted my life to Christ in 2012. It was after I recommitted my life to Christ that I began working a number of odd jobs, served as a missionary to Guinea Bissau, West Africa for nine months from the fall of 2012 to the spring of 2013. After returning to the states, I resumed working while attending Eastern Mennonite University going through their 3 year STEP (studying and training for effective pastoral ministry) program, resulting in me graduating with a three year pastoral training certificate. At the same time I got engaged to my now wife, Krystle Thorne. After graduating STEP, I was offered a position at HBIC to be the youth and young adult pastor (after being asked to apply and going through an interview). I started serving with HBIC as the youth and young adult pastor in June 2018 and got married August 26, 2018. Since then, I’ve been holding steady at HBIC.
