Life is an exciting whirlwind of adventure here at the Breznau mission station. Following the radical path of faith in Jesus Christ repeatedly proves to be the most exciting, satisfying, and rewarding life we could possibly live. And I really mean that. God has blown us away over and over again. His imagination and creativity in redemption and faith is shocking, even life-altering.
Our family ensemble plays in harmony (most of the time) and is composed of my beautiful, talented, and grace-giving wife, Stephanie, our ever-energetic son, Hudson, our darling little girl, Everlynn, our third little baby son, Carson, just arrived in October 2016, and me, the conductor of our wonderful mess of music as we live on the mission of God for the glory of God.
God gave me the opportunity to be mentored and equipped for ministry at Dallas Theological Seminary, where I completed the Master of Theology program (Th.M – Pastoral Ministries, magna cum laude). After serving on God’s mission as Pastor of Youth and Christian Education at Evangel Baptist Church in Taylor, MI for the three years, God sent us to the amazing city of Grand Rapids where I had the incredible privilege of serving as the lead pastor of North Park Baptist Church from November 2013 to November 2016. I recently entered in a new role in ministry as Staff Pastor and missions representative for LifeChange Action | MissionTalk, two joint organizations engaged in mission partnerships in Mexico, India, and the United States.
I have a passion to worship the risen Lord, a calling to tell others of the wondrous works of our God, and a vision for seeing the people of this world changed by the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
I believe God has the power to transform lives, break the power of sin, strengthen families, restore marriages, heal broken hearts, and make anyone who calls on His name a new creation!
