Director of Student Ministries

Tell us a little about yourself
I was born in Elkhart, Indiana, but spent most of my childhood moving around Michiana (that’s Michigan+Indiana) as a pastor’s kid. I fell in love with Jesus in my teens and received a call to ministry. Married my beautiful wife Christy in 2009; became a father to Wesley in 2010. As a family, we’ve spent the last two years in New Delhi, India working with students at an international school and building redemptive relationships. I graduated from the University of Northwestern – St. Paul with a focus in Global Studies and Christian Ministry. I love campfire conversations and limeade!

What are you passionate about?
I’m passionate about the ministry of reconciliation; seeing lives transformed and hearts healed. I believe that the Lord provides us a blueprint in His Word for us to live in healthy relationships not only with Him, but with each other us well.

On a trail, deep in the woods.
