I have been married to Carol for 42 years. We have 3 adult children (Anna, Matthew, Stephanie) and 3 grandchildren (Noah, Ellie, Charlie). Two of our children are members of Good Samaritan (Anna/Steve Kocher and Stephanie); our son Matthew grew up at Good Samaritan and now lives in the Washington, DC area. For the past 22 years we’ve lived in the same house in Exton, PA.
I am currently Senior Vice President for American Bible Society in Philadelphia, PA. From 1997-2016, I was the President of Scripture Union USA in Valley Forge, PA, and am now President Emeritus. Prior to that I worked for Prison Fellowship and Scripture Union USA.
Our greatest challenge is to remain faithful to the essential elements of the Christian faith—the deity of Jesus Christ and the authority of God’s Word—while at the same time being willing to reach out in love to a world in need. In so doing, we will have a tremendous impact in the Episcopal Church, our community, the Philadelphia region and the world.Our greatest opportunity is to continue as a loving, joyful Christ-centered community and in so doing “make the teaching about God our Savior attractive” (Titus 2:10).
