I am from a small town in Northern Indiana and moved to the area when I married my wife Stephanie back in 1997. We have been blessed with 2 sons, Zachary (who is currently enlisted in the Navy) and Hayden.
I am a huge Cubs fan and love Indiana basketball. When I get some down time I love just hanging out at the house watching movies and binge watching shows. I also like to work in my garden and will play just about any sport. You may see me out and about at alot of kids sporting and extra curricular events as I love to support our youth in all that they do.
I have been serving as the youth minister at FCC since 2011. I think one of my favorite moments is to see a young person come to know Jesus for the first time. The teen years can be tough, confusing and faced with alot of challenges. I hope to be of help to parents and youth as they all navigate these years.
It is not my goal to have a big youth group or grow in numbers, but to develop each kids faith so they will have a life long relationship with Jesus.
