In February 2012, Don accepted a call from a group of families in the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky area to be the founding pastor of Truth Community Fellowship.
Don brings a diverse background to the pastorate. He graduated from Indiana University Law School and was a litigation attorney in Chicago for several years before leaving his practice to pursue ministry training.
He completed his Master of Divinity and Master of Theology degrees with highest honors at The Masterâ€™s Seminary. His academic work led to a position as a Greek instructor to men preparing for pastoral ministry, a role he held for six years.
Don is ordained by Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California. He pastored GraceLife, a group of more than 600 adults, from 2005-2012. He simultaneously served as the Managing Director of Grace to You, where he oversaw the daily operations of John MacArthurâ€™s international media ministry.
His GraceLife flock has known Don as a clear and passionate Bible teacher, as well as a personal and loving shepherd. Don has preached at churches and conferences around the world in addition to publishing several academic articles on biblical themes.
Donâ€™s wife, Nancy, was a pastorâ€™s daughter before taking a remarkable step of faith by marrying an attorney in 1988. The happy marriage has produced six children.
