Our Pastor: Proclaiming the Word of God
It’s hard to have a good church without good preaching! When I was sitting in the pews, before I was ordained, I always looked for a church with a strong preacher.
Each week our Huntingdon Valley Presbyterian Church congregation gathers around the Word of God, expecting to hear important things from God.
I graduated from Princeton Theological Seminary in 2005. While at Princeton, I won the Edward Howell Roberts preaching prize.
Before I went to seminary, I taught philosophy for many years, at New York Institute of Technology, Duquesne University, and Carlow University.
As a preacher, I spend a good portion of my week studying the scriptures, and listening for what God has to say to us.
Week-to-week, I preach straight through entire books of the Bible. This forces me and the church to wrestle with the tough passages of scripture that are often skipped in other churches. It also helps us understand particular passages in their larger context.
I am a pastor and I love my job, but I also enjoy my time off. When I’m not at church, and when my work at home is done, you can find me in art galleries or used bookstores. And on warm evenings, you’re liable to find me out back with some of the fellows from church, chewing the fat and enjoying a lazy cigar.
I look forward to meeting you this Sunday!
