Drew was born in McKeesport PA and grew up on the South Allegheny side of Elizabeth in Allegheny County. He’s bounced around Pennsylvania and West Virginia during his 28 years as a radio broadcaster. A self-described “big kid,” Drew began his service to Christ as a Sunday School and Bible Study leader, primarily for youth and young couples, and would team with his wife Jenny to help with Vacation Bible Schools. He noticed God’s call to something more, when he started taking classes at Indiana District Lay Servant Ministries School.

Drew has been active in Lay Servant Ministries as both a student and a teacher and has served as a speaker, teacher, singer and musician in United Methodist churches for the last 14 years. After becoming a Certified Lay Speaker, he felt further called and encouraged to serve as a Local Licensed Pastor. He attended the Spring Licensing School in Manorville and received his certificate in April 2018.

Drew married his best friend Jenny in June 1996, and they have three children (hers, mine and ours) Robert, Emily and Andrea, and one granddaughter, Melody.  Drew was assigned as the Pastor at Grace United Methodist Church in Sykesville PA on June 1, 2018.
