“Married to my best friend for 19 years. Father of 3 incredible girls. Youth Minister since 1985. Passionate lover of the Bride of Christ. Thinker, Laugher, Door holder, Friend. I like to play and at the end of my life, I want to be known as a person who did all I could to advance the Kingdom of God. My favorite passage of Scripture is Isaiah 55 and the message God stamped on my life in 1983 was Gal 2:20 . . . I have been crucified with Christ, yet — I — live! I want to make a difference. I care about what happens after I die. I fully understand that God wants me to be more concerned about Him than I am with any person I cross paths with while living this temporary life. I’m aware of how short life on earth really is. I know that I am not in control. I don’t always, but I want more than anything to trust God with my life.”


I became a believer in Jesus in 1980 at my church’s summer camp for students. God immediately asked me to go and tell people about Him. It’s my passion, it’s my call and it is part of what God wants me to do at this stage of my ministry. I used to do it all the time and I’m excited about doing it more now.

I can speak on Sundays or Wednesdays as someone who can come alongside what you are currently doing in your ministry.

I can train your leaders through one day seminars, weekend retreats, leader luncheons or custom events designed with your ministry in mind.

I love teenagers and find great freedom to help them see what God wants them to do now and in the future. I care deeply about the church and love the opportunity to teach on Sundays. It’s a blast to get to know a group of leaders and help them take the next step as a group and as individuals . . . when I get the chance to invest in others, I am fulfilled!

I pray daily for God to allow me to use what He’s teaching me daily in the lives of people He brings across my path.

I share on and blog every once in a while at ...  you can also always give me a call 972.689.9639.
