I have a BA in Theology and an MDiv—both from Andrews University. I'm an ordained minister in the Seventh-day Adventist Church and have been pastoring in the United States since 2004. Along with my wife and three children, I've been living in Maine since 2011, and will soon be moving to the city of Portland (Maine), to plant a new church. I've written many publications for popular audiences, including four books.
