I have been serving in ministry for about 25 years. I’ve had the opportunity to serve as a youth pastor, solo pastor, and multi-staff senior pastor. The LORD called me into ministry when I was in elementary school and has kept that calling on my life through the years. I met my wife, Christy, at St. Paul Bible College (now Crown College) and we were married in December of 1991. We have three children Toby (21), Elijah (18), and Abby (14). I enjoy sports (participating and watching) and the outdoors. I love going for a walk, bike ride, or just being in God’s creation. For me, enjoying God’s creation is one way to worship Him (Ps. 19:1).
I lead and oversee Cornerstone's youth ministry, Rooted, by leading Wednesday night programming and Sunday School for the youth. This involves planning, teaching, and going on fun retreats and trips! I love spending time with students and getting to know them. I also plan, lead, and organize mission trips and opportunities for all ages of the church in order to help them fulfill the great commission.
