My brother found freedom from his addiction through the Colony of Mercy in 2013, and it was through my family’s experience that God gave me a burden and a love for the ministry of America’s Keswick and for those affected by addiction. It is a joy to watch God bring the same freedom and healing to other families that he brought to mine through the Colony of Mercy.
I have bachelors degrees in Bible and Education from Philadelphia Biblical University and a Masters of Divinity from Liberty University Baptist Theological Seminary. I have previously served in Christian schools, on the mission field, and in local churches, and in addition to my ministry at the Colony of Mercy, I currently serve as the pastor of Community Bible Church in Dunellen, NJ. It is my desire, wherever God calls me, to help others understand, appropriate, and live out the truth of God’s word and the glory of his gospel. My wife, Olga, and I met while I was serving in Russia. We have been married for almost 14 years and are the parents of one son.
