Sam was born in California and lived there until he was nine, when he moved to Mount Joy, PA. He attended Lancaster Bible College and a few months after graduating, was introduced to his wife, Taylor, by a mutual friend at a worship night. They got married in 2017 and soon after moved to Payson, AZ, where he served as Recreation and Program Manager at a year-round Christian camp. After five years of serving there – and a lot of prayer and consideration – Sam and Taylor felt God calling their family back to PA to serve in church ministry.
Sam shares, “My purpose is to show people Christ and help them grow in their understanding of who God is so they can walk faithfully and purposefully with Him.” Matthew 11:28-30, Matthew 28:18-20, and Colossians 3:15-17 have always been sources of encouragement and inspiration for him as he walks with the Lord and allows Him to help him leads others.
Sam and Taylor have two young boys who are hilarious, sweet, and social little guys! In his spare time, Sam loves playing ultimate frisbee, watching sports (Go Giants!), playing games, and spending time with his family.
