I have been serving at Willakenzie since 2009. Before being called into the ministry I had a career in construction underway (thanks to a great start working with my dad). I was able to work with some amazing people of the trade and earned a degree in the field at Lane Community College. Once God opened the doors to ministry I went on to Oklahoma Wesleyan University for training and building relationships. It was here that I met Megan, my wife since 2005. After finishing with a Bachelors Degree I continued my training at Wesley Biblical Seminary in Jackson, MS where I received an MDiv.
 

I love to play, watch, and talk sports. I also enjoy traveling, food, theology and conversations around coffee. Megan and I have two kids, Jacob and Ellie.

A quick story: My most stressful moment at seminary actually came the first week I arrived. I came down with a stomach virus that sent me to the hospital with dehydration and the next day Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast with the eye of the storm moving right past Jackson. Needless to say the rest of my time in school seemed tame after that!
