Elder Intern (with wife, Filomena)

My wife, Filomena and I have two teenage children, Isaac and Rachel. We homeschool our children and Filomena is on staff at Redemption as the bookkeeper. We have been blessed to be part of Redemption since 2008. Since that time, my wife and I have been part of Small Group leading, Greeting Teams, premarital mentoring, as well as part of the Welcome Desk. My wife and kids serve in Kids Ministry, and I serve in Men’s Group leading, evangelism training, and street witnessing. 

I graduated college with an Electronic Engineering Technologist diploma and was hired at Diamond Aircraft in 2001. Later I would also go on to get an Aircraft Mechanic diploma and would transfer into the engineering department in 2005 where I have been since. I also graduated in April 2022 from Heritage Seminary with a Master of Divinity degree. 

God has been growing us since we first came to Redemption in ways we could not have imagined. Being surrounded by so many who have sown into our lives, loved us and cared for us, have been a blessing and something we want to be able to do for others. 

A Scripture verse that I have found comforting and filled with hope is Isaiah 41:10, “fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
