I grew up in northwest Kansas, went to college in suburban Chicago, and moved to Sterling from Kansas City, where I attended seminary and served as youth pastor in the Church of the Nazarene.  I have spent the last 12 years in youth ministry in the local church where I have helped facilitate numerous retreats and summer camps, led many mission trips, and eaten more pizza than any human should consume in a lifetime.

I am ordained in the Church of the Nazarene and hold a B.A. in Christian Education and Bible/Theology from Wheaton College (IL) and an M.Div. from Nazarene Theological Seminary.  I also am an adjunct instructor at Sterling College, teaching youth ministry courses.

My passion is to see a generation of teenagers and young adults become passionate, thoughtful, and Christ-like followers of Jesus who join God's mission in the world.

I met my beautiful wife Kristi on a mission trip to Juarez, Mexico.  We have three fun and energetic kids...Jace, Caleb, and Tessa.  I am a coffee enthusiast.  I enjoy spending time with friends and family, travelling, reading, and being outdoors and active.
