I have been Pastor of the Point Pleasant Presbyterian Church since 1990, and also serve as Stated Clerk of the Presbytery of Monmouth and as an adjunct professor at New Brunswick Theological Seminary. My wife, the Rev. Claire Pula, is director of the bereavement program for Meridian at Home Hospice. We have two adult children, Benjamin and Ania. I grew up in Toms River, NJ, and have degrees from Washington College (B.A.), Princeton Theological Seminary (M.Div.) and the University of St. Andrews in Scotland (M.Phil. and Ph.D.).
