Called to invest my life in the advance of Christ’s kingdom as a pastor, ministry strengths include shepherding, preaching, and leadership. I am passionate about equipping the church for community and mission and giving hope to the broken. I want to serve a healthy, gospel-centered church that is relationally focused. Jenny and I have been happily married for nineteen years and have three kids: Caleb (13), Carson (12), and Gracie (10). We look forward to settling in and growing deep roots in the church, neighborhood, and community God calls us to.
I have served as a lead pastor for five years, during which I planted one church and led another through a time of crisis. Before that, I was a youth or associate pastor for six years, and have more than twenty years of experience in local church ministry. I also have eight years of experience working in the insurance industry, during which I served and led in all aspects of church life as a volunteer. My “out of ministry” years deepened my perspective on vocational ministry and the value of a healthy church in the life of a family.
