Sean studied Theater and Criminal Justice with a focus on Sociology at the University of Akron and then went on to receive a BA in Youth Ministries from Eastern University.
And yes, he knows that theater and criminal justice/sociology don’t mix. His “face for radio” and the call of God ultimately won out and led him to a career in ministry.
Sean has served in vocational ministry, both church world and parachurch ministry since 1995. For over 20 years Sean served in different roles within Young Life Ministries. Some of those roles include Mission Staff in Copley, Ohio, and Area Director positions for Greater Akron/Medina County, and Florence, South Carolina. Sean has also served as Youth Director for Copley UMC and as the Youth and Young Adult Minister at Northside Christian Church in Wadsworth, Ohio.
