Pastor M and his wife, Jill, arrived at Christ Chapel in November 2015. He and Jill have been married since 1981. They are the proud parents of three grown children, four grandchildren, and one very large, very needy, yet very lovable dog, Penny.

Prior to Christ Chapel, Pastor M served churches in Bowling Green, OH, Ridgetown, Ontario (Canada), Beulah, ND, and Peabody, MA. Originally from Long Island, New York he is a lifelong fan of the New York Yankees, New York Football Giants, and New York Islanders. He is very grateful that his congregation does not hold this against him. A double alumnus of Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, (M. Div., D. Min.), Pastor Menjoys reading and talking about Reformed theology, strong coffee, and listening to music performed by artists such as Matthew Smith, Dave Brubeck, and John Mayer.

His preaching mentors are Haddon Robinson, Steve Brown, John Piper, Tim Keller and N.T. Wright. 

The door to his study is always open.
