Sam joined the staff at Christ Church after spending 8 years in Lexington Kentucky. He is a born and bred Centerville Elk though. After graduating high school he moved to Lexington to attend the University of Kentucky. During his time in college he met a great girl who also happened to be from Centerville…they just never met until moving to UK. Having spent 4 years after graduation ministering to college students, he and his wife Melissa felt a call from God to return to the Dayton area. He is currently finishing up his Master of Divinity degree from Asbury Theological Seminary. Sam met the Lord for the first time when he was in high school. Because of this, he has a passion for seeing students come to know Jesus. If you are in the mood for frisbee, skate boarding, road tripping, watching the office or drinking a fresh cup of coffee (especially with a new baby), Sam is your guy!
