Who I Am
I married my college sweetheart, Erica, in 2000. Together, we have three children, Evan, Elysia, and Matthew. In 2014 our family began the journey of extending hope to others through foster care, which led to the adoption of our youngest son in early 2017.
What I Do
After teaching high school English in Michigan and serving as a worship leader for almost 10 years, my passion for the Church led me to a significant change. It was one step of faith that presented itself after years of smaller, faithful, ordinary steps. I moved with my family to Central Kentucky, where I began to serve as the Worship & Teaching Pastor at Calvary Christian Church in Winchester, KY. Five years later I took another step to join Southland Christian Church as a Campus Pastor in Georgetown, KY, where I serve to this day.
I am passionate about helping people pursue Jesus. Over my lifetime of learning from Scripture and from experience I have become convinced that all it takes to bring heaven to earth is ordinary faith in extraordinary grace. It’s not about who we are, what we can dream or accomplish, or what our talents are; the life of faith is all about turning those things over daily in small ways to an extraordinarily powerful and loving God.
That's why I am so passionate about helping people grow in their faith: because we’re all on the same journey. With a heart for encouraging and equipping the Church and pursuing grace and truth, and with almost two decades of experience in worship leading, multi-site pastoral ministry, and leadership development, my desire is to continually equip and encourage other servants and leaders in the Church to pursue the heart of God.
