I was blessed to be born and raised in a Christian home in Minnesota, and I chose to follow Jesus at a young age. My faith began to take off in junior high and high school. During 1994 – 2002, I participated on Royal Servants teams every summer. This created a passion in me for missions and youth ministry. I graduated from Crown College in May of 2000 with a degree in youth ministry. After 2 years of youth ministry in Kalamazoo, MI, God called me in 2003 to an Evangelical Free church in Adel, Iowa for 8 years, and then for 3 years in Johnston, Iowa. In June 2004 I was privileged to marry my beautiful wife, Nichole, and we have been blessed with 2 amazing children, Isaac (May 2009) and Elena (October 2012). God called us back to Reign Ministries in 2014. I find great joy in seeing God work in the lives of teenagers.
Snowboarding, snowmobiling, disc golf, and action movies.
My family, traveling, driving my dad’s 1969 Mustang, grilling on my deck, and getting away with my family.
Great BBQ cooking, Iowa sweet corn, ministry with teens, and time with my wife and kids.
I am a dreamer, creative, and driven. I like to have fun and laugh.
