I grew up in Carl Junction, Missouri before packing up and moving out here to North Carolina at the beginning of 2023. I started here at Pinedale after graduating from Ozark Christian College with a Bachelor Degree in Student Ministry. I married my high school sweetheart Gloria in November 2021 and she is the greatest asset in my ministry. She is the biggest supporter of me and all the students we are lucky to invest in. We also are expecting our first child in February 2024! I enjoy watching soccer, pretending I can still keep up with high schoolers in basketball, hiking, drinking energy drinks, eating Raising Canes Chicken Fingers, and investing in the next generation to help make them look more like Jesus. I’m a firm believer that I have the best job in the world!
