His experience in ministry has included youth ministry, parish building committee, sponsor couple and pre-cana marriage preparation, and marriage enrichment programs. He earned a BA in Psychology at the University of Maryland. In all of his experiences, Ted considers his encounter with Jesus as a teen on an ECHO retreat as the catalyst for all that he does.

Ted has been married to the one, since 1981. He and Suzanne have three adult children (completely different personalities), and three grandsons and twin granddaughters and one on the way. He enjoys reading David McCullough, Michael D. O’Brien, and the many books of the bible.

He is a great fan of the Baltimore Oriole, and the O’s. Ted enjoys watching Last Man Standing (the many strong women in the show and three completely different children) and The Middle (a family with three children who are completely different from each other). Ted loves a challenge.

Ted is passionate about meeting/seeing Christ in all who walk through our doors.
