Outside of their own relationship with Christ, the highlight of their lives together has been the gift of their children – Nathan and Alyssa. “Our family is a high priority for us,” say Rod. Together they enjoy camping, sporting activities, playing games, reading and taking walks.
Also, Rod personally enjoys playing basketball, golf, working out, watching sports and hanging out with family and friends. Rod says, “The passion of my life is relationships. God has given me a desire to build relationships in the community and in the church that will lead everyone I meet one step closer to Him.” He also states, “I believe the Greater Hazleton area is primed for a tremendous breakthrough in both physical growth and spiritual growth and we are excited to be a part of it.”
