I grew up in a non-Christian home with parents who were always present, but never engaged. We had what looked like a normal family on the outside but was often the opposite on the inside. My parents fought often and made a number of poor moral choices throughout their marriage. They divorced during my sophomore year of college, and I later learned that my dad had stolen my identity. He was arrested a few times and died after spending about 18 months in prison.
In the midst of this, as a freshman in high school, I was introduced to Christ by a mentor through K-Life Ministries. I grew in my walk with the Lord through high school and college, and I have been working in ministry most of my adult life.
I met my wife at Kanakuk Kamps. We got married in 2009 and have two children—Baylee and Liam.
Hope for The Village Church
My hope is to see The Village be a place where the Lord uses His people to effectively influence our communities with the gospel. I hope to see us, individually, be completely committed to His calling on our lives.
