My spiritual birth happened at age eleven in Delanson, New York, and was brought up under pastoral care and heard great preachers in my formative years. I have been a student in Wesleyan, Calvinistic and Evangelical seminaries and have sat under the teaching of the very best scholars in the United States. My scholastic background allowed me to receive a B.S. degree in Theology from United Wesleyan College, I went to Reformed Episcopal Seminary in Philadelphia and matriculated to Evangelical Seminary in Myerstown, Pennsylvania where I earned the Bachelor of Divinity degree. In the year 2000 I earned the Doctorate In Theological Studies, the Th.D. degree with honors. Ten years later at Bethany Divinity College and Seminary I had conferred on me the Doctor of Philosophy in Religion, the Ph.D. Summa Cum Laude.
