I want to personally welcome you Fort Ogden Community Methodist Church. After spending my entire career ministering in Florida, it is a pleasure to be at Fort Ogden as we continue to make disiples for Jesus Christ. Fort Ogden Community Church has an over 100 year history of doing just that as it has served the community faithfully.

My calling to ministry came in High School and continued as I received my Master of Divinity from the New York Theological Seminary. I have served congregations in United States as well as overseas missions across the world.

I have a wonderful wife, Irina who joins me in Fort Ogden.

Over the coming years, we plan on assessing and meeting the needs of this community. We also reach beyond this wonderful community and have a sister church in Cuba.

Take a look at our welcome video and I invite you to come and explore your place here and in God's Kingdom.
