I’m a 43-year-old Presbyterian minister living and working in Atlanta, Georgia. I serve as the Stated Clerk for the Presbytery of Greater Atlanta, the regional church body serving about twenty counties in the Atlanta metropolitan area. In this position, I am the primary staff person for process and procedure in our support of our 85 congregations, 400+ ministers, and a number of other ministries. I previously served eleven years as the pastor of the First Presbyterian Church of Whitestone, three years as Stated Clerk of the Presbytery of New York City, and six years on the staff of the Presbytery of New Hope.
Beyond my day-to-day work in the church, I am quite a music lover. I subscribe to Peter Schickele’s simple motto: “If it sounds good, it is good.” I enjoy making music and singing tenor in choirs when I can.
Before my time in New York City, I grew up in Brandon, Mississippi, and graduated from the University of Mississippi and Columbia Theological Seminary. Beyond the church and music, my interests include Apple computers, theater, history, transportation systems, and random knowledge. I’m also a bit of a soccer fan and am a supporter of the New York Red Bulls and Tottenham Hotspur.
