When did you come on staff?


2015

Which of the Core Values do you focus on and why are you passionate about it?


Build Community. I love focusing on this core value for the variety of ways we get to express community in ministry. It’s impossible to heal, grow, serve, and fulfill the Great Commission alone. Second only to the saving grace and mercy of Jesus, the community found in a church-family is the greatest blessing in our lives.

What do you love the most about your job?


I love walking with someone who is growing in their journey with Christ and watching them take steps of obedience and leadership for the very first time. I also love taking guys to Big Bend every year for some good backpacking!

Favorite Bible verse?


Outside of Work...


I've been married to Gretchen since 2002 and we have two sons.

What do you enjoy doing during your free time?


I love family time, baseball, woodworking, camping, working on my old truck, but mostly hanging out with my dog Gideon.        

Tell us something funny or interesting about yourself!


Back in the late 90s I sang in a men’s choral and we were invited to perform at the White House. I’ve also seen an angel (unrelated).
