Main Responsibilities: My main responsibility is the preaching and teaching of the Word of God to students and their families. It is my job to communicate Christ’s love for each of us through my words and actions, even though my primary responsibility is to middle-school to college-aged adults. As well as everything else that goes along with being a pastor!
Spouse: My beautiful wife, Lindsay, and I have been married since 2010. She is my partner in crime, ministry, and in life. She is my best friend.
Children: Our daughter, Ellie, loves to be creative. She sings, acts and is a great artist. She is fun and so loving. Our son, Elijah, is a John Deere tractor enthusiast and loves to wrestle with dad. They are the best kids ever.
Favorite Foods: I love pizza, mac and cheese, Chinese, apple crisp and Mountain Dew. As you can tell, I’m a health nut.
Hobbies: Hunting, fishing, golfing, playing guitar, watching movies, playing ping pong, supporting the Minnesota Vikings and Minnesota Twins and being with teenagers.
My Path to Gateway Church of the Nazarene: I was born February 14, 1988 and came to this church the very next Sunday. Gateway has been a part of every step of my walk with the Lord. I fell in love with Christ here and was trained for ministry here. I went to MidAmerica Nazarene University to study Youth and Family Ministry and graduated in 2010. Now I am incredibly blessed be serving in full time ministry here and can’t wait to see what God has in store.
