My Family:
Jamie & I have been married since 1997 and have three children: McKenna, Libbie, and Ashton

My Story:
I was strongly impacted by volunteer and paid student pastors at a crucial time in my teen life. As a high school senior, I felt a spiritual calling to full-time vocational ministry. At that point, I wasn’t sure what that role would be (Senior Pastor? Students?). Outside of that sense of calling in 1994, my greatest lesson learned is that calling is a journey. Although I still don’t know why I took all those AP Science classes, the Lord has allowed me to see how my time, interests and even personality can be surrendered to God’s bigger story.
