My journey in ministry started at 19 as I came on staff at Cornerstone Church as an assistant youth pastor. I've had a number of roles within the church over the last 15 years: worship leader, intern director, youth pastor, associate pastor, children's pastor, local and global missions director, assimilation and connection pastor, groups pastor, executive leadership, etc.
I've enjoyed serving in the local church in each and every role. I love meeting with people one-on-one, hearing their stories, as well as encouraging and celebrating who they are in Christ.
On a personal note, I have been married to my lovely wife Katie now for 15 years. Katie is a pastor's kid and grew up serving in the church. She has lead alongside me over the years in a number of different ways. She has lead small groups, preached at conferences and in services, participated in pre-marital and marriage counseling, and always supported and championed the vision of whatever ministry I was currently leading. She is a leader and has an incredible shepherding heart for people.
We have five amazing, and sometimes crazy, children: Destiny (11), Gabriel (10), Jocelyn (10), Lucious (8), and Judah (3). We are a fun-loving family. We enjoy playing games, watching movies, and having people over for dinner. Our whole family loves to laugh!
