I began serving as the Children's Minister here at Northwest Bible Church in 2014. Before joining the team here, I served in full-time children’s ministry for 13 years in Durham, NC and Austin, TX. Married almost 20 years with two children, our family has a passion for equipping parents to live out Deuteronomy 6:7 by providing biblical resources to help them become the spiritual leaders of their children’s lives.
I was extremely blessed to have grown up in a godly home. My parents knew the importance of teaching their children the love of God and how, out of love for us, He sacrificed His one and only Son, Jesus Christ, on the cross to save me from my sins and eternal consequences. I trusted Jesus Christ as my personal Lord and Savior at age seven and felt His leading upon my life to serve Him in every way possible. Upon completing my undergraduate degree, and during a two-year commitment as a counselor in a therapeutic wilderness camp for at-risk teens, I felt the Lord calling me specifically to Family/Children’s Ministry. How exciting it is to see parents lead their children into an understanding of God’s plan for their lives at an early age.
During my free time, you can find me training for the next triathlon, at the ball fields with my kids, reading a book with my wife, or trying to find the best hamburger in town! It is such a joy living out Psalm 78:4 by striving to “tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord, his power, and the wonders he has done.”
