He has served as a Presbyterian chaplain on a ship, at Boot Camp, in Operation Deep Freeze, at Naval Medical Center San Diego, with First Marine Expeditionary Force, including one year at Camp Fallujah, Iraq, and for the US Coast Guard Pacific Area, and then supervised all chaplains on Navy surface ships in the Pacific. After earning a Master of Theology in Ethics from Princeton, he taught ethics at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, and later served as the Commanding Officer of the Naval Chaplaincy School and Center. He retired as the Executive Assistant to the Chief of Chaplains at the Pentagon. He now serves as a Co-Director of Presbyterian Federal Chaplaincies, the same council that endorsed him over thirty years ago to become a Navy Chaplain.
