Spouse: My beautiful wife, Missy, and I have been married for 21 years. She is my support and my best friend.
Children: This page isn’t big enough. LOL! We have eight beautiful children ranging in age from college to infant. They are Aubyn, Ashton, Hunter, Ivy, Chesnee, Blaise, Hawk, and Wilder.
Favorite Foods: Chinese and Seafood. Combine the two and I’m extremely happy!
Hobbies: Basketball, hunting, and fishing.
My Path to Gateway Church of the Nazarene: While a student at Mount Vernon Nazarene University, I answered His call to preach and my journey began. I have been in full time ministry for over 22 years. I have pastored in Ohio, Florida, West Virginia, and now Iowa as of April 2015. I feel blessed and humbled that God has chosen me to be a part of something bigger than me. As I reflect on the journey so far, I am amazed at what God has done but I’m even more excited about what God is yet to do! I believe that the best days that Gateway has ever seen are not behind us but before us!
Spouse: My beautiful wife, Lindsay, and I have been married for 5 years. She is my partner in crime, ministry, and in life. She is my best friend.
Children: Our daughter, Ellie, turned 3 in June and is very loving and kind, fun and bubbly. She loves to go to the zoo, the park, and to Grandma’s house. Our son, Elijah, was born in November of 2013 and is the cutest baby on the face of the planet (my opinion but it’s also a fact).
Favorite Foods: I love pizza, mac and cheese, Chinese, and Mexican. As you can tell, I’m a health nut.
Hobbies: Golfing, playing guitar, watching movies, playing ping pong, football 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.
