On September 10, 1970 I came to understand the great love of God for me, a sinner and a rebel. That evening I received God’s forgiveness and a new life through Jesus Christ, who died in my place and rose again to offer forgiveness and new life. I have been senior pastor for over 40 years planting two churches in Buckingham, PA and Queens, NY and serving two other churches in Brooklyn, NY and Roslyn, PA. I am currently the lead pastor at Grace Church of Philly in the Feltonville neighborhood of Philadelphia.
God has graciously given me the opportunity to be educated beyond my intelligence :). I dropped out of high school after 10th grade and received my GED after becoming a Christian. From there God allowed me to receive a Bachelors, a M.Div., a Th. M., and then a Doctor of Ministry.
I am grateful that He put in my heart a love for His Word and for everything that helps me to understand, live, and teach His Word in a better way.
