I grew up in the great community of Mount Vernon, OH where my passion for serving people began and continued to flourish while attending Mount Vernon Nazarene University. Following university, I spent many years teaching and coaching prior to entering full-time ministry in 2010. Most recently, I joined the team at West Carrollton Naz in 2016 as the Pastor to Families with Students. In my 15+ years of working with students and families, I have had the great honor of helping develop a young generation of leaders to make a kingdom impact in their community, school and the church.
I am a husband to an incredible wife (Natalie) and father to three great kids, Trey (16), Selah (8) and Judah (6). I love reading, exercising, coaching, watching/playing sports, all things outdoors, and tea parties with my daughter. (Especially when she makes me dress up!)
