I’m a follower of Jesus (2000), husband of Jamie (2004), father of Kaden (2008) and Kaysha (2012), a pastor of Crossroads (2016). (Apparently big things just happen in election years…)

As a certified introvert, I’m perfectly content listening and observing. But if you want to get me talking, ask me about my family, traveling, home renovations, the Detroit Lions, Bible study, or theology.

God has allowed me to serve at four churches since 2002. During this time, He has taught me to listen well, learn from others, and appreciate the contributions of people from a variety of backgrounds. My B.A. in Educational Ministries and Master of Divinity from Moody Theological Seminary has prepared me to teach and lead in the context of the local church “so that the body of Christ may be built up” (Eph. 4:12).

I’m beyond privileged to call Crossroads Community Church “home.” It’s here in this transient, busy, fast-changing community that I get to worship the God I love with a bunch of people I love.

Here are a few things I love about my job:

  • Teaching and talking with people about how we can experience real inward transformation.
  • Helping people find peace and hope as cultural winds swirl around us.
  • Uniting people around our common faith in Jesus.
  • Connecting people to gospel-centered, grace-oriented, biblically-grounded groups of believers (see Missional Communities).

I’d love to meet you over a cup of coffee or in the atrium on Sunday morning. Let’s find out how I can best serve you!
