What I Do:
I help people find and follow Jesus through pastoral care ministry to include coaching, counseling, funerals, weddings and Celebrate Recovery.
What I Love About Christ Fellowship:
Christ Fellowship is a training ground committed to developing each other and a family who strives to care for each other. It’s an Aircraft Carrier where people come to refuel and rearm only to be sent out again for effective use in the War.
How I Ended Up at Christ Fellowship:
I served as Junior High Pastor from 2000-2002 during my seminary years at DTS. My bride Robyn and I have wanted to return since 2010. We finally returned in the Summer of 2017, and through relationship and offering value, returned to pastoral staff.
Before Christ Fellowship:
Before Christ Fellowship, I helped people find and follow Jesus Christ as a church planting lead pastor with the Evangelical Free Church of America. I also served as a Chaplain in the Air National Guard from 2009-2016. Additionally, I served oncology and hospital patients as a Chaplain from 2015-2017. Add to that mix, our family owned a business to help veterans make a comeback through selling books on Amazon.
How I Met Jesus:
I trusted in Christ at age 17 after a table fell on my toe at work. Ask if you want to know more. Favorite Bible Verse: Acts 20:24 – “However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace.”
