Pastor Sam was born and raised in South Florida until the age of 10. His family then moved to Massachusetts for 5 years, returning to
South Florida as Sam began his Sophomore year of high school. After receiving a BA in Biblical and Theological Studies from Palm Beach Atlantic University in 2016 he began pursuing his MDiv at PBA (forthcoming Spring 2019).
Sam’s dad has been a pastor for most of his life, so he served in ministry alongside his family for many years. He came to Connect Church to serve as the Director of Middle School Ministries in the summer of 2016. He now serves as the Student Pastor for the church. His ministry passions are social justice and global missions.
Sam married his wonderful wife Rachael on August 1st, 2015. In his leisure, Sam enjoys spending time with his wife, reading, and writing/recording music.
