I began serving the community of Van Wert as Youth Pastor in September 2016. I see my ministry ultimately as being a coach for students. Where I am a person who has a strong connection with the students, so that I can model, train, and encourage them. You really can’t ask for a better job! 

I graduated Moody Bible Institute in 2013 with a major in Youth Ministry, as well as, Biblical & Theological Studies. I then served as a Youth Pastor in Northern Wisconsin for three years. The biggest blessing from my time at Moody though, is my wife Ashlen. We got married in 2014, even though she stood me up on our first date (which she somehow remembers differently). Since then, I have had the privilege of doing life with this incredible woman. We love having the privilege to serve youth and their families together.

In my down time I love to have a good cup of coffee, play board games, watch/coach sports, and watch movies.
