I was part of a pilgriming family of believers wanting to begin a new church in East Orange, founded on Biblical principles Jesus Christ, and family values. After attending my first men’s retreat at Alpine Covenant in the late 1970’s, I realized how beneficial it was for me to receive teaching and fellowship among brothers in Christ. That led me from youth ministry into men’s ministry around 1985. I enjoy the ability to be strengthened by other men who want God’s best, and to share Biblical solutions to life’s challenges. I love spending time with my wife Pam, traveling to Europe or to see family in NewJersey. Also gardening, biking, golfing, taking walks and having coffee and dinner with friends.
