It has been a dream for me to work in higher education as this was such a monumental time for me when I was younger. It was in a Christian College that I heard God’s call upon my life!
I have been in full-time ministry since 1993 where I started as a Student Ministries Director at Highland Park Nazarene Church in Lakeland, Florida. In 1996, I worked at Lima Community Church in Lima, Ohio as the Director of Student ministries. In 1998, I was hired as the Area Director of Kennewick-Richland Young Life and served there for 14 years. While I was the Young Life Area Director in Kennewick, the ministry grew to be one of the most productive ministries in the United States.
In 2012, As an Area Developer and Regional Trainer for the Inland Northwest Region (Eastern WA and N. Idaho) I spent time growing and developing Young Life in rural and diverse communities. In 2012, I was also hired to be a Training Associate for the Young Life National Training Department. I continued there until being hired at Multnomah in 2014.
In my free time, I love to eat at the great restaurants in Portland and hangout with my wife Amy! On a personal note, I have been married to my wife since 1990 and have two sons. I enjoy outdoor activities such as mountaineering, camping, snow skiing, boating, and golf. I also enjoy technology in the area of videography, photography, social media, and all things Apple.
