View Personal Bio
I grew up in Silver Lake and attended Cuyahoga Falls High School, class of '83. I earned BA and MA degrees from Wheaton College, Wheaton IL. In 1990, I founded Emmaus Ministries (www.streets.org), an ecumenical work of mercy dedicated to helping young men out of prostitution where I served as the Executive Director for over twenty years before moving back to Ohio in 2009 to care for my aging parents. I spent the first year in Ohio completing my book Streetwalking With Jesus: Reaching Out in Justice and Mercy (OSV, 2011). After a time of discernment, formed a new organization, Moving Body & Soul, LLC which seeks to inspire physical, spiritual, and missional fitness. Cafe O'Play is the latest product of this vision. I'm married to Carolyn Green since 1993 and we have four children. I'm also an ordained Permanent Deacon in the Catholic Church and serve at Holy Family Parish in Stow.
