I grew up in Iowa (Go Hawkeyes!) Graduated from Ozark Christian College, originally joined the staff at Pinedale as the Student Minister in 1997 following a year and half internship at Southeast in Louisville, KY. Bonus, I met my awesome wife (Andrea) at Pinedale and we are blessed with two great kids Carston & Caroline. I love my role that involves a bit of everything - Preaching team, Pastoral Care, College Kids & Community Involvement (“Leave It Better”). I love Cold weather, Coffee, & College football.
