Spiritual journey: I grew up in a Christian home and accepted Christ into my life at young age.  As a teenager I began to wrestle with questions of identity and purpose wondering how Jesus Christ was going to impact my future.  While on a short-term mission trip with my youth group, I heard God’s call to ministry.  I wanted to help other teens know and follow Jesus Christ.  I am constantly growing and learning through trial and error about what it means to be on this adventure.  I am learning to hear God’s voice more and more every day.  I want to love Him more and love others better.

Call to ministry: My call to ministry came while I was on a short-term mission experience with a Covenant youth group I was attending in high school.  I was excited that I could help meet the physical and spiritual needs of others.  My faith in God deepened as I experienced more of His presence.  I knew I wanted to live a life that counted for eternity and responded to God’s call by studying Youth Ministry in College and serving Him in the context of the local church.

I am passionate about: Communicating God’s word in a fresh and engaging manner.  I long to see people transformed by the power of the Holy Spirit.  I love my wife of 22 years and my four children.  I love music, reading and watching movies.  I am also passionate about global and local missions where the love of God is shared in word and in deed.  I love visiting other cultures and countries.

How long have you been involved in ministry? I worked in youth and music ministry part time during college from 1988 to 1992.  I have served as a full time in youth pastor in four churches from 1992 to present.

What do you think is important that we know about you, as a member of the Speaker Team? I have had the privilege of speaking at youth summer camps, winter camps, family camps, chapel services, seminars, and mission experiences.  I’ve also had the privilege of preaching in a variety of churches in various locations and contexts.  I desire to use my gifts to encourage and challenge people to follow Christ and allow the Holy Spirit to transform them.  I also am passionate about sharing God’s love with those who aren’t yet followers of Christ.  I believe that God’s love is the most powerful force in the universe and that His love wins.  I love nothing more than the opportunity to communicate that love with passion in an atmosphere of grace and freedom in Christ.
