Biography

Vince is a poor miserable sinner, saved by grace, and diligently seeking to obediently follow Jesus every day.  He is blessed to be married to Marianna for 26 years, and barely keeps up with their three amazing children – Matthew (18), Collin (16), and Kathleen (16).

He brings a unique set of business and ministry planning, training, and implementation experiences to his leadership of LINC Ministries.  Prior to entering full time ministry in 2001, Vince held results-oriented positions of increasing responsibility in both small company and Fortune 500 settings.  While a managing partner with a Texas based corporation, Vince consulted with over 300 churches of various sizes and denominations, helping them bring their ministry ideas to life.

Vince speaks and facilitates regularly in the areas of ministry governance, planning, staffing, and strategy.  He is passionate about helping leaders grow, and guiding churches and ministries to a place of Kingdom advancement, wherever God has placed them and called them to be.  He is a Network Navigator with Auxano.

Vince’s early training was at the Eastman School of Music.  He subsequently graduated from St. John Fisher College in Rochester, NY (Management), and Concordia Seminary in St. Louis, MO (Theology).  He served as Executive Pastor and Interim Lead Pastor of Gloria Dei Lutheran Church in Houston, TX, and Executive Pastor of Summit Community Church in Buckeye, AZ, prior to answering the Call to LINC Ministries in 2018.
