He grew up in Southern California serving as an acolyte and leader in his Youth Group, earning the Eagle Scout rank and the God and Country Award in the Boy Scouts of America. He moved to Maryland where he again served as an acolyte, was confirmed by the Bishop of Maryland who, ten years later, ordained him as a Deacon and Priest. He attended college in New Hampshire and entered Virginia Theological Seminary immediately after graduation. His first church leadership was serving five years as an Assistant Priest in two urban churches in Baltimore and Greensboro, NC. His first rectorship was outside Richmond, VA building a new church from scratch to full self support in eight years. He then served 12 years as Rector of a corporate size congregation with a full staff of six in Stratford CT.
