Prevailing in Prayer – Luke 18:1-8

Unity of the Spirit – Paper for Ministry of Worship class concerning a subject dear to me in the last few years; what is unity, its blessing, the bitterness of its absence, and how to foster unity.

Sons without Discipline – A paper on antinomianism in 17th century England; a dive into two of the most influential antinomian spokesmen of the time, how the Westminster Assembly responded to their works, and why it’s important to the church.

Christ is Sufficient: Paul’s New Covenant Confidence from 2 Corinthians 3:7-11 – My paper for New Testament Exegesis II, for the suffering minister. I’ve had no greater joy in Seminary yet than while writing this paper.


Sinner saved by grace alone. Husband, father, church member, worker, pastor-in-training.

I was converted possibly in 2011 under a sermon expounding the parable of the ten virgins. The Lord led me down the road of becoming a CPA (licensed 2015), and I have worked in accounting, tax, and wealth planning. I married my love in 2014, and since then the Lord has given us four dear children.

The call and desire for ministry have always been with me as long as I can remember. I was honored to serve as a ruling elder at the Grand Rapids RPCNA congregation before being brought over to Pittsburgh to study and pursue the ministry. I am student under care of the Great Lakes-Gulf (pending transfer to the Presbytery of the Alleghenies), and we are members of Providence RPC.
