What  is your favorite Bible verse?  1 John  4:9-12, “This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.”

What is your passion and calling? My life calling is to love and serve  Jesus by loving and serving people. I am passionate about helping  others seek and follow Jesus in faith. I cannot think of a more rewarding, more fulfilling job than building relationships and pointing people to a relationship with God.

What brought you to Lord of Life?  The LORD brought me to Lord of Life not too long after I graduated from Judson College with a degree in  Youth Ministry. It was really cool how he orchestrated the whole thing! If you want to hear the story you’ll have to ask me in person because it’s too much to type. Since being at Lord of Life God has brought many blessings into my life, the most obvious being my wife Emily and our three children Mabel (5) and Henry (3), and Ida (6 months).

Anything else you would like to share? Yes, I’d like to share some chocolate chip cookies with anyone who is willing to bake them and come by my office to hang out! I’m serious.
