I am the Executive Pastor at Church at the Springs (Ocala, FL) I am married to Sandy and we have 2 married children (our son Hal 4 is married to Chrissy and our daughter Ashley is married to Sam Updike). I also have 4 grandchildren- granddaughter – Ella Kay Updike, grandson Sam Updike Jr, grandson Joshua Updike and grandson Hal Mayer 5 (cinco-de-mayer). As far as formal education – I earned a Bachelors degree in Education, a Masters degree in Religious Education and a Doctorate degree in Leadership. With these degrees in hand – I can get a cup of coffee at McDonalds for $1.50!
I believe there are two passions that best define me: evangelism and leadership.
