Associate Executive Director

About my family: I have been married to the most wonderful women, Ashley, since 2011.  We enjoy being by each other’s side every day. We have three children: Jazlynn (born 2014), Ryder (born 2016), and Bryant (born 2018).  We are blessed beyond measure.

In the Bible, I relate strongly to: The story of Jonah where the Lord is telling him to go to Nineveh to preach but he chooses to go Tarshish instead.  Even though Jonah didn’t follow his command, God continued to pursue Jonah.  He does the same for each of us.  He may not send a huge fish to swallow us up, but he is pursuing us is several other ways. That is what I love about God, that he doesn’t give up on us and He always pursues us even when we try to go a different direction or we try to do everything on our own.  He is crazy about us and will always be running toward us.   

In my spare time, I enjoy: Being outside doing just about anything! I enjoy playing disc golf early in the morning as the sun comes up and enjoy watching nature wake up.  Our family spends majority of our time outside the seasons we can: riding ATVs, playing ball, cook outs, etc.

My favorite quote: “I used to be afraid of failing at something that really mattered to me, but now I’m more afraid at succeeding at things that don’t matter.”  Bob Goff, Love Does

My most heart-felt prayer is: That I can use the gifts and talents that I have been given to build His Kingdom for His glory.  When I meet our Savior and cross through the finish line of life, I want to be thoroughly used up and hear the words, “Well done, good & faithful servant.”
