Meet our pastor


     Welcome to Trinity Pooler, Carolyn and I are blessed to serve here.  Carolyn and I moved to Pooler in the summer of 2017 and have loved getting to know the church and the community.

     As former “Connecticut Yankees” we “saw the light” in 1981, when, after graduating from college, and getting married, we moved to Georgia.  We have lived our entire married life here on the coast.  First, on St. Simons, then in Woodbine, and now here in Pooler.  Being close to the beach is where we love to be.


     We have two adult children who are married to wonderful spouses.  We are the proud grandparents of one grandson, Hank, who is in 3rd grade and lives in Nashville with our son and daughter in-law.  The most recent joy of our lives is our brand new granddaughter, Adeleine,  who lives in the Atlanta area with our daughter and son in-law.  You can see a few pictures of our family here.  Fortunately, our children get their looks (and brains) from their mother, but you probably guessed that already!


     For twenty six years I owned my own business, a retail men’s clothing store on St. Simons, which I closed in 2012 to follow God’s call on my life to serve in ministry.  Before going full-time, I served for 6½ years on staff at St. Simons, UMC as Minister of Discipleship and Associate Pastor.


     I received a Master's of Divinity degree from Asbury Theological Seminary, and I also have a Masters degree in Christian Counseling from Cornerstone University.  I am also a UCONN Huskie having graduated with a BA in Business Administration.  Each step of the way Carolyn has been by my side as my partner in life and ministry.


     Carolyn has been gifted by God in many ways.  She is a phenomenal Bible teacher and uses her gift to teach women’s Bible studies.  She also has this amazing gift of hospitality and makes people feel right at home the moment she meets them.  I like to tell people you will love Carolyn and tolerate me.


     Our mission here at Trinity Pooler is to grow in our relationship with God and others.  Whether you are married, divorced, single or widowed, Trinity Pooler wants to be your family. 


     If either of us can be of any assistance to you please email me at  We hope to meet you soon!
