It is a joy to serve as pastor of Central United Methodist Church since June 2016.  This is an active and engaged congregation seeking to serve Christ and our Newberry community from the center of the beautiful downtown area.  Everyone is most welcome here!

                My wife, Donna teaches Special Education with very young children in the Newberry County School District.  We have three grown children and one wonderful grandson.  Named for my loving Dad, our grandson, Forest, is the special center of our extended family!

                I enjoy all aspects of ordained ministry including preaching, planning and leading sacred worship, personal/pastoral visitation with individuals in need, the administration and guidance of the everyday life of Central Church and some Annual Conference and District duties. 

If not involved in church activities, then you will probably find me involved with volunteer work for the Boy Scouts of America.  Working in the garden is also an enjoyable hobby for me.  Both Donna and I appreciate our two new kittens.

Central Church has a strong ministry menu including Stephen Ministry to persons desiring individual care relationships with a well-qualified person, an engaging music program of contemporary, traditional and children’s groups, a number of study options in the scriptures and contemporary life, ways to reach out to the Newberry community providing food, housing renewal and other means of support.

If I may provide assistance, information or other guidance, then please feel free to contact me at the church office at 803-276-3903, extension 1001 or via e-mail at  I am also active on Face Book, Instagram and Twitter.  Let’s get together soon and share friendship and the love of Christ Jesus!
