I was born and raised as a “pastor’s kid” outside of Salt Lake City, Utah for all of my life until God took me to Sterling, Kansas where I attended Sterling College. At Sterling College. God gave me the pleasure of not only receiving a Bachelor’s Degree in New Testament Biblical Studies, but He also allowed me to fall more in love with His Word and His people in a way that has changed my life dramatically and placed me on a trajectory for full-time vocational ministry with His precious local church.
Just before heading out of state to college, I met my dear wife, Emily, at a children’s home in Tijuana, Mexico. From that point on, God has grown us together until we would become happily married in July 2016. Emily is the most important person in my life, and her presence in my life is evidence of God’s grace to me.
While in College, God also allowed me the opportunity to serve at two churches in the Bay Area of California during the summer doing High School Ministry and College Ministry with students from local universities. Upon graduation from college, Emily and I got married in the Bay Area and then quickly moved to Littleton, Colorado so that I could attend Denver Seminary in the fall of 2016. During 2016 God graciously provided me the opportunity to work in Children’s Ministry at a local congregation until He brought me to GracePoint to be the new Youth Director. I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of the GracePoint family and I am SO excited to lead the Youth Group program!
A few last pieces of information that will help you get to know me are that I have a deep passion for studying God’s Word and local church ministry, and God has placed a burden on my heart for ministry to Mormons. Outside of church life, I enjoy cooking, listening to audiobooks, and Emily and I love anything that is active and outside in God’s beautiful creation!
