Church of the Resurrection


Our church believes that the body of Christ spans all time, all people, and all ages. We hold our teens and youth as integral members of our congregation, and we believe in a strong youth program and know that this next generation will be the ones sustaining the church for years to come.

We ensure that our young adults engage in biblical teaching, discipleship, worship, prayer and learn with both younger and older generations, as well as with one another.

He and his wife, Ema, enjoy traveling, camping, and bragging about the New England Patriots to whoever will listen.
