I've been the Associate Pastor at Harvest Time since 2003. I was fortunate to marry my best friend, Patty, in 1990 and we have three adult exceptional children, Amanda, Rebecca, and Nick, Jr. We've been a part of Harvest Time since 1994 and it's more than a church - it's family.
Born and raised right here in Connecticut - someone on staff has to be! I grew up in various Connecticut towns and cities and came to know Christ personally as a teenager. Did my undergrad studies at Fairfield University and then took a law degree at Hofstra University. I practiced law in Connecticut for 15 years before starting to "practice grace."
Since joining the Harvest Time staff it's been my privilege to serve the Lord in a number of ways, including preaching, leading worship, steering the church's prayer ministries, running social media, and teaching the Word of God in a number of different settings. My passion is to see people be unleashed in their gifts and callings!
Patty has served the Lord since coming to faith in her teen years and has done almost every job it's possible to do in a church. She has also worked full-time for Nicky Cruz Ministries. Patty loves encouraging the ladies of our congregation.
