Pastor, soccer coach, guitarist/singer. I enjoy hiking, puzzles, flower and vegetable gardens, meeting new people, reading theology, working with my hands. Grew up internationally.

I have served as a pastor in The United Methodist Church since 1992. I spent my childhood in Southeast Asia; graduated from Columbia International University (1990) with a degree in Bible and Mission and a certificate in Teaching English as a Foreign Language; and graduated from Lancaster Theological Seminary (1996) with a Masters of Divinity, including special awards in Biblical Interpretation and Rural Ministry. I received a Doctorate of Ministry from Wesley Theological Seminary in Washington, DC in 2019. I have traveled on mission in Venezuela, Spain, and Haiti and visited Christians in Palestine and Israel.

I serve on the Council on Finance and Administration for the Susquehanna Conference of The United Methodist Church, the Lewisburg District Committee on Ministry, and mentor candidates for pastoral ministry. My wife Robin Bohanan (pictured together with me on a hike) passed away early in 2020. I have two adult sons, Jesse and Caleb. Robin was a family nurse practitioner with a specialty in HIV/AIDS at Brookhill Family Medicine (Conyngham) with Lehigh Valley Health Network. Her mission travels included medical work and research in Lesotho, South Africa, and Ghana.
