I worked for 45 years in a family-owned wholesale plumbing and electrical supply business. I also served over 20 years as a firefighter. My wife, Julie, and I have been married since 1997 and have 3 grown children. We live currently in Pendleton, SC with their 2 dogs, Bailey and Bella. I am proud to call Newspring my church home. I initially became involved with this ministry through volunteering at the mobile showers after being recruited by my friend, Doug Austin. My favorite thing about serving is seeing some of our neighbors get jobs and making steps in recovery. I really enjoy talking with and getting to know my friends that we serve.
