About Jesse

I am married quite undeservedly to my beautiful wife Bethany, and have been blessed with three children, Silas, Shiloh, and Lucy.  I currently have the privilege of serving as the Pastor of Worship and Discipleship at Green Pond Bible Chapel in Rockaway, NJ.

I was born and raised in South Jersey, right outside Philadelphia, which makes me a crazy Philly sports fan and an excellent Jersey driver. I spent 6 years of my life in the wonderful city of Louisville, KY where I received my MDiv from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.

I’m passionate about corporate worship, discipleship, counseling, writing new texts for old hymn tunes, reviving old hymns in fresh new ways, and using newer songs to bring the body together in unity to glory in the gospel. Other hobbies include bouldering, soccer, volleyball, reading, and always trying to improve musically! You’ll find most of those things being blogged about here, all in light of living in the new resurrection life we’ve been provided in Christ through the Spirit.
