Elders

From 1st Timonthy chapter 3:

"Whoever aspires to be an overseer desires a noble task. Now the overseer is to be above reproach, faithful to his wife, temperate, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, not given to drunkenness, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money. He must manage his own family well and see that his children obey him, and he must do so in a manner worthy of full respect. (If anyone does not know how to manage his own family, how can he take care of God's church?) He must not be a recent convert, or he may become conceited and fall under the same judgment as the devil. He must also have a good reputation with outsiders, so that he will not fall into disgrace and into the devil's trap."

We have 6 elders serving our congregation.

My wife, Sophia, and I obeyed the gospel as young adults by hearing the Word of God, believing, and confessing for the remission of our sins finalized through baptism. I studied religion and other liberal arts courses as an undergraduate. After college I obtained work in finance and most recently banking. My wife and I have three children that have obeyed the gospel and continue to remain steadfast to the faith as the scriptures attest.I have coached youth sports in the past and currently serve on the Boys and Girls club of Harrisburg board of directors. As a life time learner I continue my education both spiritually and professionally informally through reading books, attending conferences and workshops. I have served as an Elder at the Camp Hill Church of Christ since February 2019. In 2006 I served as the deacon of youth at Camp Hill church.
