Who Am I?

Christ follower:::Pastor In Training:::Gospel Heralder:::XPA:::Yankees Faithful

Hello I’m Simon and thanks for stopping by!

I’m a “young” thirty something originally from the tri-state area but have transplanted to Medford, MA (Crazy – a NY Yankees fan in the heart of Sox Nation).

I came to New England to answer God’s call for me in pastoral, local church ministry. For the last few years, I’ve been living just north of Boston, graduated from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, and interned and pastored briefly at Cornerstone Church of Boston.  I have since stepped down from that position to seek out further development and growth in my qualifcations as an elder/pastor.  In my search for personal and pastoral growth, God led me to Seven Mile Road Church.  Here, primarily through Ox Track, the Gospel is re-shaping, re-orienting, re-building my heart for pastoral ministry.  It has been my deep joy to serve this community, love these people and give my life to this church (imperfectly to be sure).

Currently, God has given me an opportunity to serve as an Exectuive Pastoral Assistant (XPA) at Seven Mile Road.   I am so excited about this! You can see what I’ll be doing here.  You can see why I’m doing this here.  If you wish to partner with me, please consider giving.

In a world that is self-promoting, my heart’s desire is to proclaim and herald the excellencies of Christ – to declare that we cannot save ourselves, that we are not lord of our lives but that Christ is the one true Savior and Lord – that His cross proves it.  My desire is to commit my life to that both “in public and from house to house.”

Other than that, you’ll often find me meeting up with people over coffee, dropping trifectas at the local gym, testing my culinary abilities, reading and blogging – Jack of all trades, master of none.

Thanks for checking out my page! Feel free to follow me on twitter.
