Originally From: Washington Crossing, NJ

Personal Information: Between graduating from and returning to Evangel, I spent nearly 11 years in the music business.
In 1977-78, I was one of the first "contemporary Christian music" DJs in the country. I helped pick AMY GRANT'S first radio single.
Next, my wife and I owned the Logsdon Associates talent agency and booked concert tours nationwide for nearly 10 years. During that time, I was also national director of the FCCM (Fellowship of Contemporary Christian Ministries) for two terms; managed WJTL-FM in Lancaster, PA, for three+ years; and served on the board of the CREATION FESTIVAL, the largest Christian music event in the world (working closely with them for 20 years).
It was a great ride, and many aspects of "that life" prepared me for my time of service at Evangel.
