Max S. believes that “nothing is more important than a healthy community” and has found in Old First a community of faith to support him in his studies at Lancaster Theological Seminary and his work as a gerontologist engaged in advocacy for managed care for aging adults. Believing that because Old First values individual conviction and initiative, “it is what you make of it,” Max hopes to use his gifts in the ways they are most useful to the church (which has led, to date, to the Admin SLG).

Max lives with spouse Fontaine in South Philadelphia and enjoys learning, making and listening to music (including singing in the Old First choir), and cooking for others. A stated liking for animals and a self-description as “a seminarian aspiring to be an instrument of peace” leads to the inevitable question about St. Francis of Assisi as a role model and Max agrees that Francis is an inspiration for him and a good example for all of us.
