Nicole and I are college sweet hearts and were married in 2003. We have five beautiful daughter’s and two sons. I love The University of Michigan Wolverines and I am a Sun Devil Alumni–college football Saturday’s are my favorite hobby. As a family we are passionate about foster care and adoption. We love the opportunity to live out scripture together as a family.
I was born in Detroit, Michigan but have converted to a life long desert rat. I love Arizona and the ability to enjoy so many aspects of Gods creation in one location and the fact that the beach is only six hours away isn’t bad either.
I spent the first part of my life growing up in a Baptist church where I learned to be a good kid on the outside. I was morally compliant but I knew there must be more. After my father accepted a job offer; me, my brother Eric and our parents moved to Arizona. I started junior high in Arizona and quickly realized all the temptations the world has to offer and found myself drifting from the things of God. I started believing the lies of selfishness and self gratification. In 1998 after attending Redemption for a couple years; God opened my eyes and changed my heart. The Gospel became clear and Jesus became my everything.
I love that the Gospel is not age graded. It is exactly what a high school and junior high student need. Being in student and children’s ministries for the last 15 years has allowed me to see Jesus is what a student needs. My desire is that students meet Jesus and plant a firm foundation that will propel them into their lives as followers of Jesus.
