Our Pastor

When I first came to Riverside, I found a church where people would spend the better part of an hour after the service talking, catching up, and sharing life together. There is a real sense of family in this congregation, and I pray that everyone who visits discovers this. We are also a church that cares deeply about the truth. The shifting winds of culture, fashion, and opinion have nothing on the enduring riches of God’s Word, the Bible. Everything we do is rooted in the firm foundation of Scripture, and that rock-solid footing has kept this church faithful for over a hundred years.

I grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio, and attended Moody Bible Institute and Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. I have also lived in Washington State, Maryland, and Central Asia. I am deeply privileged to serve together with my wife Christy, who directs the musical aspects of our worship services for God’s glory. At home we are tasked with the joyful shepherding of the five young boys the Lord has given us.
