My wife, Roxanna, and I started VCC in 1978. We have been here ever since! We love this church and the people that are here and plan to spend the rest of our lives here. We have 6 beautiful children: Michael, Hannah, Stephany, Jason, Christopher, and Paul. All of them are Christians. We have been married for 30+ years. I am 55 years old. My favorite hobbies are teaching and studying God's Word, spending time with my family, reading other great books, fishing and hunting, in that order. I grew up in a very large family. I have 11 brothers and sisters. Many of them attend VCC today and are very active in the ministry. I grew up in NJ and was saved when I was 19 years old. I was part of the "Jesus People" movement in the 1970's and traveled around the US doing evangelistic work among the hippies and street people. Before I was full-time in the ministry, I was a builder with my brothers at "DiYanni Homes" and an accountant. My favorite Bible verse is Hebrews 4:12.
