Ross has never seemed to escape the draw of the ocean. Growing up, he split his time between the beaches of Virginia Beach, Virginia and Nantucket Island, Massachusetts. After building way too many sandcastles, he enrolled in the architecture school at Virginia Tech. Halfway through his undergraduate studies, God invited him to pursue a life of ministry wherein he could show others how a life of faith, one with a deep relationship with God, is the way to live better. He received his Masters in Divinity from Duke University and was soon after appointed to Saint Stephen’s UMC to begin his ministry. In the time when he isn’t getting lost navigating the streets of Marblehead, he is a lover of all things art, design, good whiskey, and weekend hiking.
