United Community Church of God Ursina, Pennsylvania

Thank you for coming to visit us online at the United Community Church of God.  I would like to take this time to introduce myself and share a little bit about my family and me.


I am a 1991 graduate of Rockwood High School.  After school I went on to receive my Bachelor of Arts in Computer Science from Messiah College in Grantham, Pennsylvania.  It was at Messiah that I met my wife to be, Crystal Hicks.  We were wed on June 4, 1995.  Eight months after our wedding we moved to Findlay, Ohio where I began my Master of Divinity program at Winebrener Theological Seminary.  I completed my Masters degree in May 1999.


In January of 1999, God blessed Crystal and I with our first child, Caleb.  After my graduation I worked for several months in the national office of the Churches of God, General Conference.  God called me to the Kingwood Church of God in October 1999.  I served the Kingwood Church of God as the Associate Pastor.  At the Kingwood Church I oversaw the Junior Church and the Christian Education program.  During our time at the Kingwood Church, God blessed us with our second child, Gabriel, born in December of 2000.  In October 2004, I felt the call to the come to the United Community Church of God as their pastor.
