I was born in southern California, but have also lived in Montana and Washington until my family found themselves led by God to Arizona when I was 8 years old. I don’t remember the exact age I came to know the Lord, although I do remember having a deep love for Him from a young age. My walk with Jesus has had its ups and downs, but along the way God has been beyond gracious and patient with me, which I am so grateful for.
I started attending Redemption Gilbert once I graduated high school in 2014 and immediately dove into the life and community of this church from the start. My first year at Redemption Gilbert marked one of the biggest years of spiritual growth I’ve ever had in my life. It was also the year that I felt moved by Christ to take steps towards vocational ministry. I graduated from Grand Canyon University where I got a degree in Biblical Studies and met my beautiful and lovely wife Crystal who I married in June of 2018. I love this church community and am so blessed to serve here.
