About two decades ago, God in His great grace radically saved me through the gospel, granting me repentance toward Himself and faith in His beloved Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. How thankful I am for all that He has done for me and in me. In 2006, I graduated from Reformed Baptist Seminary with a Bachelor of Divinity (B.Div.) degree. Shortly thereafter, I was ordained as an elder at Englewood Baptist Church, New Jersey, and later called to serve as a pastor of Grace Community Baptist Church, Rhode Island (2007). It is a joy to shepherd this dear congregation. The Lord is doing many wonderful things among us.
In 2010 my first book, entitled A Portrait of Paul, (co-authored) was published by Reformation Heritage Books. A new book (co-authored) on the subject of Spiritual Warfare is due out early 2014 by the same publisher. And after more than five years of full-time experience in pastoral ministry, Reformed Baptist Seminary has elevated my Bachelor of Divinity to a Master of Divinity (M.Div.) degree. I am very thankful for all of the opportunities the Lord has granted me to serve Him and for the theological education that RBS has given me. This seminary has prepared me to do what I do today — and for this I bless our great God.
