I was born in West Virginia and raised in South Central Pa. Starting in college, I worked with youth first in a church and then for five years with a para-church ministry. After graduating from Princeton Theological Seminary, I spent 25 years as Presbyterian Minister, serving churches in Texas, New Jersey and suburban Philadelphia. I am a doctoral candidate at Drew University and have taught seminary classes in Church History, Biblical Studies, and Practical Theology. I have spent the last ten years involved in interfaith work, initially as a member of the national Jewish-Presbyterian dialogue team, as a fellow with the Christian Leadership Initiative of AJC & Shalom Hartman Institute, and a Lilly funded interfaith dialogue around values. I am currently the Pastor of the Feasterville Community Reformed Church, a consultant with the Classis of Delaware-Raritan (RCA), and an adjunct professor at New Brunswick Theological Seminary.
