About Me

The Kingdom Story is Still Being Written…

I love Jesus and my family and feel honored to be a part of the Kingdom story. Ministry is my passion and my call and I love learning with and from all of the people I have the privilege to encounter. I am married to my high school sweetheart Jessica and am the proud father of two children; Micah and Abigail. I have worked in church and para church ministry settings for over 15 years. I am an ordained Pastor in the LCMC (Lutheran Churches in Mission for Christ). I am a pastor, spiritual director, teacher, speaker, writer and consultant. I recently completed my doctoral degree at Fuller Seminary. My personal mission statement is to help others experience transformation through Jesus Christ. My hope is that each day I might draw closer to God and to be an answer to someone’s prayer. Thank you for visiting my website, be sure to check out all of the pages on this website to learn more about me.
